Hi everyone ! It was time to make a new ceiling lamp in the dining room. I saw some georgeous black metal baskets that are used as a candle holder or a modern fruit basket. But I immediately knew it would be a new lamp. It is so easy to make. You need a drill bit for metal, a vintage looking ,ready to use ceiling rose set and a led filament bulb.

I had 2 projects.I recycled my old ceiling lamp for one project and just replaced the wires and for the other project I used a vintage ceiling rose in copper.

Buy a great looking black metal basket

Look for a vintage metal ceiling rose. This one has a fabric cable. It looks really awesome. I chose a copper one. Dril a hole in the basket with a drill bit for metal. Be sure to mesure your bulb head holder.

put it all together. Your lamp is ready !

This is the one with the celing rose.

That is the one i made with my recycled ceiling light holder. It used to have 3 white glass lamps. I took out all the old cables and put in 2 new fabric cords and voilà. I chose some led filament bulb for the total look.

it is so easy and you have an original. let me know what you 🤔 think

    How did you rewire the lights or did you do that? I would like to do this but I don’t know how to rewire and I’ll have to because of the light already up there. Thank you

    Hi Natalie, l absolutely love your basket lights. Where did you get your baskets. I've never seen any like yours. Tried amazon, nothing close

      Try looking for one similar. Sometimes you find you like the one you had to use in place of an original idea to be a better fit for you.

    I love the basket too! In the first pic it looks like an upside down heart.
