DIY Industrial Lights

I love these versatile metal baskets that we sell at the Shoppe, but must confess that I love them even better as lights.

They were so easy to make.  I just flipped the basket upside down, added a socket and cord, and finished it off with an antique filament bulb for interest.

They look great grouped together, especially hanging in these old church window frames.

Such a super easy project, I love how they turned out.

We have some of these available at the Shoppe right now, either as lights, or as baskets...
your choice.  By the way, Canton First Monday is this week!

I just love these and you just confirmed that I should do this with the two old wire driving range baskets I found over the summer! Thanks for the inspiration! Theresa xoxo

I agree. I LOVE what I call "Industrial Chic". Using almost coarse utilitarian objects and repurposing their functionality.
Awesome look!
Laurie Anna you have "the eye" lol! :)

They look really nice, what kind of light bulbs did you use though, they look like the bulbs you get from old tube amps.
