Sock-et to me

This might be my favorite project i've ever done! 
I found this chandelier at the thrift store for $7 (well it was really $10 but i talked them down to $7 :)
 I have been wanting one for our bathroom to replace the ugly track lighting that was there. (that i forgot to take a pic of...)
 I removed the bulbs and white plastic wire covers and covered the wires with newspaper.  (this is an after pic cause i forgot to take before pics.)

 I didn't want to spray paint the cord, because it makes it all sticky so   i  my sweet husband sewed a cover for it. 
Well i started and had it almost done and realized my lower bobbin wasn't threaded so i stormed off to do something else and came back and the hubs had finished it. i love him.
 and there ya have it!
it was really hard to get a good picture of it with the lighting and all. 

You will not believe how much this project cost me!
Chandelier $7
Paint $7
Fabric-scraps i had laying around.
Total = $14
