Upon seeing it, I immediately thought "ooooh! a foyer light!" yep, just like that. And for only $12.99, I couldn't resist at least trying. So I purchased it, headed to Lowe's for a pendant lighting kit which cost me $19.99, headed home, watched my husband smack his lips just as a "hater" does, and got to work. I placed the lighting kit top in between the smallest hole, screwed it tightly and made sure it was secure. I was left with this:
This is where my husband came in:) I wanted to fixture as flush to the ceiling as possible, so I needed the wire to be cut shorter.
Using some type of electrical wire cutter he was able to cut the cord in half.
He then slightly split the cord to expose the wires to connect in the ceiling.
Here is how my foyer looked before the fixture was installed:
Here it is now:
Not too bad for $32 for the garden object and the pendent lighting kit. I am now very happy with my foyer. Even though its not anything grand, its shaping up into something that I adore. Oh, and I have to show you this fixture I came across on line from Shades of Light.
How much you ask? Try $199.99! Ha! So similar and I am very happy with my budget friendly option,.
Do you like my new fixture as much as I do? Have you taken something used for one thing and used it for something totally different? Well, share it in the comments below!
Until next time...
