My house: DIY string chandelier

The living room just got a little DIY action with our new fixture. After seeing Naomi's fixture in her lounge I really liked this idea for our living room.
Then I saw this photo from Emma of Marion House Book's house on Small Shop Studio and I was sold. Now bear with me, I know this doesn't look like our light but it has the same feel in the room. Open, boho and sophisticated.
So we DIY'd this bad boy and I have a tutorial coming but need to finish up a few things, like switch the light bulb out and paint the backplate of the fixture to match the navy blue cord. In the other tutorials I've read they don't tell you what a pain it is to make this but I will. Its a pain as in I will never make one again and I cussed the entire time but it was worth it. It works really well in the room I love how the light plays over the walls and ceiling at night.
