Ever since my boyfriend and I bought an old house with no overhead lighting, we've been desperate to install ceiling lights.

I think I'm going to try my hand at it. Here's a great tutorial from the Naughty Secretary Club if you want to give it a shot yourself, and here's the look I'm going for:
For the record, this stunning lamp is from Design Without Regard and costs a whopping $980. Looks like it's yarn and fabric stiffener for me!
