There’s nothing like flowers to get you through a long day, right? We love the simplicity of the hanging test tube vases that have been super popular over in the store, but recently decided to step it up a notch with this floral chandelier, perfect for adding a touch of pretty, and actually so simple to make! Oh and, if you’re trying to decide what flowers to use, perhaps you could match the rug to your flowers? 🙂
