Hi it truly is Sarah Sherman Samuelfrom Smitten Studio & A Sunny Afternoon, popping in with thisclever & supersimplependantlight DIY. I was brainstorming on possible projects for my new house with my pal, and fellow maker, Lauren Bradshaw and she came up with this genius idea of turning this gold & black bowl from Ikeainto a contemporary pendant lamp. I love that it is an low-cost way of obtaining the search of a Tom Dixon “Beat Light”.Supplies I employed for this are: 1. this dish, two. pendant kit, 3. a power drill, 4. a one.75″ hole saw, 5. a pretty antique type bulb.For the 1st phase, I measured to locate the very middle point of the back of the dish and drilled by way of utilizing the 1.75″ hole saw bit (which you can locate at any hardware store). This took a bit of elbow grease and a steady hand. Also, be cautious of the smallmetal splinters and dust that come off although drilling, safely glasses would be a very good notion! When the drill goes all the way via you have acquired the hole in the dish to insert the threaded component of the pendant light. Rightafter that, just screw on the tinyring from the kit, hang the pendant and which is it! You’ve received oneself a lovelymodern pendant light.I consider it functions fantastic in my readingthroughnook but it would also be lovely hanging over a diningtable, or even two of them hovering more than nightstands on each and everyside of a bed! Satisfied DIY-ing. x Sarah
