Chicken Wire Storage Basket Pendant Lights

We needed 2 new lights to hang over our hand me down farmhouse table. Naturally everything I really liked cost more than I was willing to pay.
That's when I came across these cuties at Ollies for $12.
I then took the lighting unit out of these crazy ugly lights given to me by my best friend. (you know you have a good friend when she saves you these!!)
I spray painted the lights an off white, flipped the basket upside down and attached the light inside. Then you hang them like you would normally hang a hard wired pendant or chandelier.
Attach the lid to the bottom with some really thin florists wire.
Enjoy! To see a more detailed description of how I did this head on over to Always Never Done. here is the link.
They throw off great light and at night the chicken wire creates really cool geometric shadows on the walls and ceiling.

    Absolutely love your church bench/pew. Do you have more/better pic's of it and what did you do to transform it? Sadie M.
