Turning a basket into a light fixture tutorial
Step 1 – Drill a hold big enough for the plug end side of the cord to fit through. You can always make the hold bigger, not smaller, so remember that 🙂
Step 2: Fit the cord through the hole.
Wells woke up during the process, so here is me holding little man while daddy does the work 🙂
Step 3: Our basket was coming apart a bit so we used wire to hold the top on.
Step 4: Find a stud in the ceiling and screw it in. We did it with cable cord holders like these. See, we totally would have fixed it into the ceiling and not had a cord going across the ceiling but we rent and don’t own, so this is our makeshift way of having a light fixture. Not so bad, eh?
So our stud finder didn’t work at first and we missed a few times, oops!
Next, plug in a light bulb and gasp at the beauty 🙂
Here it is with the light off.
Also, we took the old shade and put it on another lamp we just made, more on that later 🙂
