How to make a light fixture that will work with your budget and will be a fun design piece to any space.
Hi, all. Hope your day is going well and off to a fantastic start. Super excited to share this light fixture project; that was under $50.00 to make.
In addition to the project, I received some excellent handyman instruction. I am currently taking Power Tool’s 101 from the hubby, scary but true. I thought Biology was a tough course, no comparison, that professor was an angel:) (kidding babe). It is always fun working with my Mr. M.
You can build this eclectic light fixture too!
Our bathroom, located off the mud room is grand central station and called for something fun and funky. I found these candle holders at Homegoods, and one thing led to another, well, this is what transpired:
“Easy peasy lemon squeezy” (a quote from my daughter’s fantastic kinder teacher Mrs. F)
We are still repurposing our Adirondack chair in any design project where it fits. Now that the light fixture was complete, the hanging device was another story. Through trial and error, and excellent collaboration, we came up with these very cool corbels to hang and secure the light fixture too.
5 Simple Steps to Make a Light Fixture Under $50.00:
1.) Spray painted and used sand paper to create distressing on the lanterns
2.) Drilled holes in the bottom of lanterns using a 4-inch hole saw.
3.) Drilled holes in the top of the fixtures for the light and electrical connections.
4.) The light socket, mounting hardware, and electrical wire were purchased at Home Depot for about $10.00. The assembly is an easy two wire connection to the junction box.
5.) Corbels were made from the Adirondack chair parts and put together to form a 90-degree wall bracket. The lanterns hang in a notch created with a 1-inch hole saw.
