This is the light I used to have in my kitchen. It looked great when that area looked like this
Not so much anymore.
My style has been moving towards a more industrial chic meets rustic and I’ve really been drawn to these cage style lights but can’t justify or afford the price tag that goes along with it.
Do you remember this wire bell I got at the start of yard sale season this year? Or maybe it’s a birdcage? I can’t really tell. Either way, it was just $1.
*disclaimer* I’m not down with the country decor of the ’80s. I apologize in advance if this offends any of you reading this blog.
Now that that’s out in the open let’s get this makeover started!
I cut off the top part and the heart shaped stick inside the bell/birdcage. I also had a pendant light kit from Lowe’s.
And this is what I came up with
This little bell/birdcage works perfectly. It has a little door you can slide up and it’s the perfect size to be able to reach in and change the light bulb. And I don’t mind that little heart accent on the door; my maiden name is Hart so it is a little special touch I do like. Plus, it also matches another little heart detail from our remodel
So back to the Pendant Light. Here is picture overload
And here it is in relation to the the island
It gives off so much more natural light then the other light did. No more yellow/orange haze!
And I just have to show you guys a blooper picture. This is what I deal with on a constant basis. Gunner has to be in every shot!
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!! I know I will and I’ll have the pictures to share later next week!
