Diy Light Fixture
I’ve finally finished my laundry room makeover. The last touch was my light fixture. I was so happy to find the perfect basket for this project. I had to find one that had a hard bottom in order to drill a hole for the bulb to fit.
- While this fixture is great, I wanted a more Indy/ casual look and I bought these amazing bulbs which Are so cool.
So here’s what I did...I found this sturdy wooden basket for only $16 and knew it would be perfect for my humongous light bulb!
Cutting the handles
Here I had my husband cut the handles off with cutting pliers.
Next step...we measured where to cut out the hole for the bulb to fit through.
Using a spade bit, we drilled the hole. I attached the bulb through the shade to a porcelain keyless ceiling mount .
Thanks for stopping by!
Here is the bulb that I used. I found this one at our local Habitat.
Here is what I used to mount my fixture. You can buy this at your local hardware store for under $4
