DIY Slip-On Pendant Cover / Sjenilo za luster

 
DIY Pendant Cover by ana@carpe_diem


Prije skoro tri godine smo renovirali naš Pansion.
Imali smo dosta starih lustera kojih nisam namjeravala baciti.
Barem ne sve djelove!
 
Almost three years ago we have decided to remodell our Pansion (B&B).
We had plenty of old pendants that I didn't want ot get rid off.
At least, not the all parts!




 
Zadržala sam metalni dio sjenila, osvježila ga novim slojem boje.
Odmah sam znala da ću napraviti nove lustere od njih.
Ovaj metalno sjenilo je šire sa donje strane
Saavršeenoo! Za moj naum :)
 
I kept this metal part of the fomer pendant shade, refreshed with new coat of paint.
I knew right away that I am going to use all of them.
It has a bottom part slightly wider then the top.
Peerfeect! For my idea :)
 
 


 
 
 Nakon što sam izmjerila dimenzije sjenila,
izrezala sam platno odgovarajuće širine i duljine.
Naravno, platno je i šire i dulje od samog sjenila.
Sve što se treba napraviti je presavinuti rubove i prošiti ih.
 
After I took the measurements of the metal shade,
I cut the fabric accordingly.
Fabric width and lenght is bigger then metal shade itself, of course.
All ou have to do is fold the edges and machine sew it.
 
 
 
 
 
Odlučila sam se najprije za materijal na sitne plavo-bijele prugice,
namjerno sam htjela vodoravne pruge.
 
I decided upon these tiny blue-white stripes,
I deliberately choose horisontal stripes.
 
 
 
 
 
 Umetnula sam lastik u ušitak ruba.
Koristite sgurnosnu iglu ili ukosnicu, što je pri ruci.
 
Insert the elastic band in the folded edge.
You can use safety pin, or hair pin, what comes handy.
 
 
 
 
 
I tako, vrlo jednostavno i brzo,
dobije se navlaka za sjenilo lustera
koja se može skidati po želji radi pranja.
 
And so, very simply and fast,
you get slip-on cover for pendant shade
that you can easily take off to wash.
 
 
 
 
 
 Kao što sam rekla,
namjerno sam uzela vodoravne prugice jer sam znala da će se materijal naborati
i da će izgledati kao valovi.
 
Like I said earlier,
I choose horisontal stripes on purpose beacuse I knew it will look like waves.
 
 
 

 
Napraviti ovakvu navlaku je bilo vrlo jednostavno,
tko da sam ubrzo sašila još nekoliko, u drugim dezenima.
 
Making this slip-on cover was so easy,
I made several more in diffent pattern.
 




 
Kupila sam nove visilice sa grlom,
montirala stara sjenila sa novim navlakama
i svaka je soba dobila još više morskog ugođaja.
Ove lustere imamo i sobama ravnog plafona i u potkrovlju,
i svugdje lijepo pašu.
A najveći mogući plus ovim navlakama je da se lako skidaju i peru!
 
I got new electric cords,
installed old shades with new covers on
and each room got even more of nautical, summerly look.
We have these pendants in rooms with flat ceilings and in attic,
and they suit every room just fine.
And the best part is that these covers are comming down easily so they can be washed
when needed!
