I was thinking it may be possible to pull something like this off as a DIY but maybe I'm crazy. We'll see. I've been thinking about it today and I just might give it a try. I have this older IKEA chandelier (see below) that we're no longer using and I was imaging how I could pull it apart and replace the crystals with beads. Would it work? Not sure. It's fun to imagine that it might though! Then I could have my own beaded beauty!
