Or I can do something like this, but I wanted to change away from the asian cheap paper lantern globe for lighting in my grown up home office/lounge & not bring the asian decor the is prevalent in my house into my home office, where I want it to be a comfy, feminine retreat where I wont mind doing endless hours of research and fact checking while I write magazine articles and work on my book(s).

This candle holder is made from a split found log and holds 5 tealights. It is wide and not tall, almost appearing to be set into the table. This candle holder is 13.5 inches long, 5 inches wide and 1.75 inches tall. Five handmade beeswax candles are included with your log! Our beeswax candles are locally made by the lovely Michael of Beeswic, here on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/Beeswic Entirely reclaimed materials :: All of our wood is reclaimed and salvaged; rescued from the side of the road or scraps from Aaron’s custom furniture orders. All metal is recycled as well ,from old jewellery to scraps of electrical copper wire. Eco Finish :: We use a hard wax oil to finish most of our pieces. Hard wax oil penetrates the wood and strengthens the fibres from within without leaving a film on the surface, like varnish. It’s also completely natural and food safe. Wooden utensils and bowls intended for use with food, like our salt bowls and cooking spoons, are finished with beeswax. Caring for your item :: It is very easy to care for your B&B goods. If it was finished with beeswax, it will naturally re-coat itself with oils, but if you desire to recoat it, simply wipe it with olive, sesame or walnut oil occasionally. We recommend washing items with water, no soap, and drying them right away to lengthen the lifetime of your B&B product. Wood and liquid are not the best of friends, so stick to non-liquid foods for your bowls and spoons and refrain from submerging your B&B product in water or any other liquid. Salad dressing is fine! Production Time :: Most of our items are ready to ship, however for certain listings we custom make upon receipt of your order. Please allow 1 week to create and ship your pieces. Engraving & Customization :: Most items can be customized and engraved upon with wood burning. Please let us know in the Message to Buyer or a Convo if you are interested in this option. It will be an addition $15. Shipping Methods and Delivery Times :: If the item is “Ready to ship”, we will ship your order within three days of receipt of payment. If the shipping costs end up being less than you paid, we will immediately reimburse the difference via PayPal! If you are in Canada or the USA, we will ship your item by Accelerated Mail using Canada Post. Your item will be insured and tracked, and we will email you the tracking number. Your item should arrive between 1 and 7 days, depending on your proximity to Montreal, Canada. If you are outside of North America, your item will ship insured but without a tracking number. If you would like a tracking number, please contact me for shipping rates. If you are in Australia, your item should take approximately two weeks to arrive, however, we have had packages take up to three months to arrive. If you would like to have your item arrive faster, there is a very significant price difference – it will cost $65 and will arrive in 7 business days. we apologize for the inconvenience, but Canada Post has terrible shipping options to Australia, and we hope this will one day change. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions! You can read our full shipping, returns and payment policies here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/BlisscraftandBrazen/policy

**** Heads up friends! do to a large volume of orders for this item we are currently experiencing a 4-6 week turn around time for the Terrarium to be completed and ready to ship. if you need this item right away please convo us for the exact wait time before ordering. we are sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be back on top of orders very soon! thank you for your understanding and for baring with us! Happiest holidays to you!! ********* THIS TERRARIUM is hand built and hand crafted by me. it is made of entirely recycled materials. the wood is salvaged from old houses and the glass is from mis-cut industrial glass that would other wise be unused, this means you can feel good about a product made of all recycled materials which = Eco Friendly! This is a fantasticly stylish table top terrarium. made of wood and glass, it is almost like a window into a miniture forest. Perfect for a window cill herb garden. this terrarium is so fantastic because it is small and yet not cramped. alot of the little terrariums i see seem to be TOO small for anything to really grow in them. i find that this one is just perfect. its like a nature TV. (ha ha) you can just sit down and go to your own special little forest. perfect for the urbanite who dwells in the city but longs for the wilds! the key to a sucessful terrarium is mysting your plants and sun light, sparse watering instead of soaking. most terrarium plants thrive on regular light waterings, bonsai and suculent love mysting. measures 11 x 5.5 x 12 (please take note: this terrarium does not come with any plants, it comes ready to be filled.) The plant kit shown here is avalible in my shop seperately here is a link to that listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/84152339/miniature-forest-plant-kit-for-terrarium

Sara Eslami took the DUKTIG play kitchen ($99, check out the before) and gave it an update using only: Ikea TAG Handles, Butcher Block Contact Paper, LED stick-on lights, spray paint (white, gold, and primer), poster board and sharpie (for the subway tiles). Brilliant! P.S. Two more Ikea …
