I am lucky to have a Grandma that has sheds full of fun treasures. I shopped in her sheds in September and came home with these goodies.
Now, I am pretty sure this is a warming lamp from a little chicken coop she used to have in her yard years and years ago.
It was a bit filthy. I was looking for a cute, industrial type light for above my kitchen sink. And I knew I could make this one work. I just had to use a little ingenuity.
First, I removed the socket and cord from the lamp.
Then I washed the lamp. I stupidly used an SOS pad and scratched it up a little but you can't really see the scratches unless you are right up close. Thankfully, with it hanging above the sink, no one will be up close;)
Then I had to figure out how to mount it to the existing can light fixture.
I bought this pendant light fixture from Menards (I think).
And I am in love with it!
I am so happy I finally tackled this and got it up. It looks exactly how I was hoping it would look!! It took me so long to get this up partly because I was busy with holidays and the kids' birthdays and Craftshop and partly because I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the long list of projects I made myself in my mind. I was so overwhelmed, I entered a slight paralysis phase and was unable to do anything. Finally, I decided to tackle one project and not think about the rest and it worked:)
Next up, reupholstering this settee...
