As I continue to look at every single page of the new Flea Market Style Magazine, I'm finding some great ideas. But when I saw their pages about using funnels, I fell over. See the picture below? The one of their funnel pendant light? That's my light! Well, not my actual light but one just like my light. I've been wanting a new pendant light in my dining room. I wanted something industrial. I was considering purchasing this one but just wasn't sure. Then, my husband and I went to a great architectural salvage place here in Ft. Worth and found this industrial funnel they had already wired as a pendant light. It wasn't expensive but you could make your own with a funnel and wiring kit. I've rewired lamps and it's easy. The directions are actually on the rewiring kit. After hanging my new light, I added a thin, red stripe around it so that it fit in the room perfectly. Some laughed at my new fixture, but I loved it. Now, it's famous!
Here it is in the magazine.
Here's mine! Exactly the same.
Here it is with the little red stripe!
WOW...what a neat light fixture...luv it!ReplyDelete

Love the rustic look...and it shows up so well against the red wallsReplyDelete
