For now, it’s back to my kitchen lighting. The burlap basket thingy I hung up there just wasn’t working for me. I thought it was a great idea, but it wasn’t. Thank you for being kind and not telling me! I went to my inspiration file and found all of these beckoning to me…

Drum shades in the kitchen! I love it! You can find them for less than $10 (if you’re clever), and you can cover them in fabric to add a pop of color. Voila, instant cute lighting update!
So let’s review all the many befores!
1. Here you can see the (awful red kitchen) Tiffany-style pendant and my first attempt at making skeleton/cage lights (which were originally Tiffany style globes).
4. And here we are today! Did I finally get it right? I think as right as a girl can get jerry rigging her lights for the third time! If you missed the post about the lantern lights, click here to see how I did those.
If you follow this method, you won’t have to use anything to cover the seam because it will look very clean from underneath too! To attach the shade to the light, all I did was use some beading wire to secure it in place. Sigh. I love beading wire. It’s like my own special girly version of duct tape.
So there you have it. Third time is the charm?
