Joseph Findeiss' "Owl House" in Denver, Colorado is a visually-expressive mix of style and genres. Described as "a little bit Green Acres, a dash of Moonrise Kingdom" with some estate sale chic thrown in, it's a place perfectly suited to the artist who lives there. This eclecticism is on display in Joe's kitchen and dining room:

The black chandelier is Joe's favorite DIY. As he tells Apartment Therapy: 

The chandelier in the kitchen is pretty awesome. It was a thrift store find given to me by my friend Brian, and it was missing one of the ceramic candelabras, just wires hanging off.  I made a mold of one of the other ceramic bits, filled it with two part plastic mold, and drilled it out. It's not perfect, but I'll be damned if it's not close.  I took 1 3/4' oak dowels, drilled them out on the drill press, and stained then for the covers. That was my friend Kira's idea. Brilliant.
