A few weeks ago at a quick pop into High Fashion Home, I spotted a pendant light that I thought I could hack. A few craft stores later, we have a light. Ok, so it wasn’t that easy, but it wasn’t as difficult as
we I thought it might be. We the hubs just needed to have a lot of patience using a drill bit for glass and tile that was NOT a diamond tip. (Have I ever mentioned just how cheap we can be?!) But instead of taking 5 minutes to drill through the glass it took just over an hour. No kidding. (So maybe it would have worth my his time to pay the $25 difference?!)
Regardless, it’s done and it was relatively cheap. The glass jar was $10 (with a Michaels coupon), the light socket was $4, the (extra thick) cord was $8, and I already had the hot pink construction cord. We also spent $6 on the now-questionable drill bit. So for around $30 we made ourselves a pretty niffty knock-off.
Tomorrow I’ll post the photo step-by-step.
