Diy CAN be cheap and easy. Truthfully, i have gotten most of my ideas from pinterest, and then some are just straight from the brain. For instance, i took a normal, cheap floor lamp from walmart and spray painted black and added an edison bulb. Spray paint can be super helpful and awesome for wanting to make something or update. really as long as you have tools, like super glue, spray paint, jute cord, fake flowers, and tea light candles. if you would like more detailed tips, please contact me or just leave a comment.
