….light…but not just any kind of ordinary light….
i love the industrial yet soft look of both of these fixtures. and it has been my mission to re-create them.
first… i had to find a good round base. i have literally scoured home depot, lowes, michaels, joann’s, ikea, you name it looking for the perfect base. last weekend – while at scotts antique market here in atlanta- i think i may have found the answer. i purchased a “ring” from a wine barrel for the tiny cost of $5.00. the gentleman that i purchased the ring from said he wondered if he would sell “a one of them” and i was his answer….yes!! there is always be a need for someone to purchase a rusty old round ring from a wine barrel!!
second...the easy part…the fabric with which to wrap my base… linen (awful expensive) and a painters tarp!! (super cheap and the scraps are useful for a number of things…i will show you that with some DIY Christmas posts to come). needless to say…im gonna go for the painters tarp!
third…my light kit…easy – ikea. done. another tiny cost of $5.00.
fourth… how to assemble the light for it to hang…. and that put me back to….STill LoOKinG! : )
gotcha!!! huh? … you thought i was going to show you the finished step by step…end result… well… not just yet. but soon…
happy thursday readers. weekend in sight!! scl
