Chicken wire storage basket pendant lightsMart 22, 2021
We needed 2 new lights to hang over our hand on the farmer’s table. Of course, anything I really liked cost more than I was willing to pay.
That’s when I came across these cuties at Ollies for $ 12.
Then I took the lighting unit out of those crazy ugly lights my best friend gave me. (You know you have a good friend when she saves this one for you !!)
I sprayed the lights off-white, turned the basket over and fastened the light in it. Then hang them up like you would normally hang a hard-wired pendant or chandelier.
Secure the lid to the bottom with a really thin florist wire.
Enjoy! To see a more detailed description of how I did this, head over to Always Never Done. here is the link. http://alwaysneverdone.com/2015/03/chicken-wire-basket-turned-pendant-light-fixture/
They shed a lot of light and at night the chicken wire creates really cool geometric shadows on the walls and ceiling.
