Upgrade Your Space With These Faux High End Pendant Lights
Need a renter-friendly solution to your pendant lights? This project is for you! You don’t need to spend big bucks to have stunning high end pendant lights, you just need a little innovation! This project doesn’t require any power tools and you can easily find everything you’ll need at your local hardware and home goods stores. As a renter myself, I had been wanting to update my kitchen to match my aesthetic a bit more. This project is a quick, easy, and budget-friendly way to do just that. Follow me as I do it myself and show you how you can as well!
Tools and Materials:
- Mini hacksaw
- Clear silicone
Before I did anything, I needed to remove my current pendant light. As I’m a renter, I made sure to save all parts of the light fixture that came with the apartment in a safe space so that when I eventually move out I can put everything back to the way it was originally. If your light fixtures are glass, take extra care when removing and storing them.
I started by removing the circular piece at the top of the lampshade where it would usually be screwed in place on a lamp. If you have power tools you can use one here, but I wanted to keep this project renter friendly so I’ll show you how to do it with a mini hacksaw.
Do this part carefully as you don’t want to slip and injure yourself.
I added a tiny ball of silicon to the end of the three pieces of metal that were connected to the circular piece we just removed. I decided to go with silicone because while it will secure it in place, it will also be easy to remove it when I move out.
Then I thread the pendant light through the three pieces of metal and secured it in place.
And that’s it! Just a few minutes out of my day and I have already made my rental feel homier and more my style. How would you upgrade your rental? Let me know in the comments below!
