Budz, I kinda like this new quick post method. Way less stressful for yours truly. There is so much stuff that I always want to share, but the pressure of the internet makes me feel like I should always present to you via some big, bad, epic post. How ’bout just a little tid bit? That works for me and makes it way more fun.
Okay, so I am kinda obsessed with all the possibilities of making my own lighting after making the swing arm pendant a few weeks (eh, months) back. Since electricity is scary, I decided it would be best for my next project to do something with a little power guidance. I picked up this Lindsey Adelman DIY pendant from Grand Brass Lamp Parts. It’s a lamp set that uses parts that you could find at Grand Brass (my new favorite website on the internets) or even at your local hardware store. I kinda even mixed and matched a few pieces to make it my own (like the cord) and added a dimmer. Anyway, I really enjoyed building this lamp, and it gave me the confidence to tackle something of my own creation down the road. I have lots of ideas brewing.
Anyway, if you’re curious too, check out the kits either over at Lindsey Adelman’s site or at Grandbrass. Happy almost weekend, this has been a long one.
Very cool! And I love the “tidbit” posts, please keep them coming!
Will do, I am excited about them too :)
Looks lovely. How did you swag the cord over the ceiling hook without the weight of the light pulling it through?
Hey, Claire! I was able to create the swag by using a small brass ‘s’ hook. I just twisted the cord through the hook right where I wanted the length of the pendant to be. The hook prevents the pendant from putting tension on the swag. Hope that helps.
Another fan of the “tidbit” posts here! Oh, and great lamp.
Awesome, I will keep them coming!
Loved this whenI saw it, and the swing arm pendant too. Really stylish, but I was blown away with your creativity in making them. I never, ever would have thought to attempt it, or even would have had a clue where to start (spatial imagery problem…..started with dressmaking….). And then I was dawdling over on the Anthropology website when I saw this – http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/product/home-lighting/38131926.jsp#/
and thought it was the copycat of your lights. Great job, and what a savings!!
