This dynamic duo is busting at the seams with talent. They recently completed DIY light fixture, (and boy am I a sucker for light fixtures), and they were kind enough to share their ideas with us!
Edison style pendant light fixture
The next is my favorite woodworking project. It was an idea we had after researching bed side lamps. I really wanted to use Edison style bulbs somewhere and always thought a pendant light over the sink would look nice. So, I put the two together and built a distressed pine box, stained it dark maple, and wired it to the existing light fixture.
I ordered most of the parts from Sundialwire, but another good site would be www.1000bulbs.com.
Bulbs – http://www.sundialwire.com/BS21MA30.aspx ($9.00) | 5 = $45
Socket – http://www.sundialwire.com/SKSKNK.aspx ($4.75) | 5 = $23.75
Dimensions are 10 inches wide by 40 inches long by 4 inches high. I spaces the 5 lights evenly across the face (about 6 and 2/3 inches)
The dye I used was Transfast water soluble dye – dark mission brown.
Dye applied, now applying a coat (or three) of polyurethane. I had my helpers for this part.
Again, a big thanks to Heather and Doug for sharing. Make sure to look at all there other DIY projects, recipes and anecdotes at “Taking It All In“.
