Colander Light Fixture


I decided to move the light fixture I had in my pantry to over my little Coffee Corner, hence, I needed a new light fixture for my pantry.  I bought this Pioneer Woman Large Colander for $10 at Walmart.  Then I went to Lowe’s and bought this ceramic light socket kit for about $8.

Then I drilled a hole in the center with a universal drill bit.

Added the light socket kit. Ok, technically my electrician added the light socket! Thank, Hep!

Then spray painted the chrome rims on the colander with Rust-Oleum Metallic Antique Brass.  The knobs I added to the cabinets are antique brass and I didn’t like the shiny chrome.  I also spray painted the chain (which I already had) and the ceiling plate (forgot to take a pic).  The ceiling plate kit and pieces cost about another $15.

Ta daa!

Love it! So cute for a pantry light and only cost about $35!
