DIY Basket Light
I wanted the perfect light to finish off the nursery I’ve been working on.
I had two gorgeous baskets that I had bought years ago, and when looking at one, an idea struck!
Why not turn one of the baskets into a light?!
I ordered a mini pendant light kit off of Amazon.
Spade drill bit
I used a 3/8 spade drill bit to make the hole I needed.
After finding the center, I was ready to drill.
This is where the cord would be passed through.
We had to unscrew a tiny screw in order to get the cord loose.
Once the cord was through, we trimmed down the cord to have it the length we wanted.
We also used some blue and a nut to hold the cord so that it hung straight.
It worked out better that I imagined.
I absolutely love how it finished off the nursery. The fun thing is that I can be done with any basket as long as it’s open enough to allow the light to be bright enough.
Would you try this?
