I love the look of industrial lighting but don't generally love the price tag. I found a neat one at a local store I love, but couldn't afford it.
So I thought I would make one for my new kitchen.
I found an inexpensive metal flower basket for under 10.00 and a light kit from Lowes for under 20.00.
The light kit was a darker brown tone and the basket was black, I knew I wanted it to look like rusted metal, so I painted both of them using craft paint in a rust tone. Once I got the look I wanted, I let it dry and sprayed on a matte finish varnish.
For under $30.00 I have a unique light, and I just love it over my breakfast table.
