How to inexpensively repurpose a builder grade mini pendant light with industrial style.
I have a mixture of styles that I love- farmhouse, French country, industrial- and I try to keep them balanced and working together in our space. (Do you find yourself in that struggle too? I blame Pinterest.)
- Builder grade mini pendant light fixture
- Oil rubbed bronze spray paint (affiliate)
- Sisal rope- 3/8 inch
- High temp hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Metal lamp guard (affiliate)
Each light took about 30-40 minutes to wrap. The beginning is a little tricky to get started. Hold the rope in place for the first few wraps around the downrod, and apply about a dime size of hot glue for each wrap around.
I held the end in place until the last bit of glue was completely cool.
The lamp guards screwed right in place above the bulb and that was it! I used Edison bulbs to give it a more vintage look too. They give off a yellowy light that I’m okay with in person, but it doesn’t translate very well to photos. They are rustic industrial fabulosity though. 🙂
