Earlier today I showed you my cage lighting and I let you know that if my plan worked to change out that Tiffany globe I would share it with you. If not, we would never speak of it again! Well…I’m speaking baby!
I had this wire basket from the Christmas Tree Shop (I think it was around $5-$6).
I knew I could use it for this project! Okay, so…I hoped I could use it. Originally, I had wanted to copy my idol, Heather Chadduck, and make something like this….
….but that would require me to buy another fixture and change it out and blah, blah, blah…I just wanted easy and cheap today. So, I took the basket and added some wires in the middle of the circle as shown below. Then I opened the center of the wires and slipped it over the bulby part of my fixture.
I needed to add a small wire to the right side to balance the fixture, but you can’t even see it. That was it! New light in a matter of minutes!
Okay, try and imagine white cabinets, beadboard walls, and burlap curtains as you look at the light. Nice eh?
The lighting (no pun intended) is horrible in this picture, but you get the idea…
I love it. It’s like a little lighted-up egg basket in my kitchen!
