Lori’s DIY insulator pendant lights

insulator pendant lightsWhen we featured Lori’s kitchen recently, we asked her where she purchased her insulator pendants. Well, wouldn’t you know, she’s a crafty and said, “It was a DIY job….  I bought the light kit from Home Depot & the insulators from a local business that sells house parts from houses that are dismantled instead of demolished (Urban Miners). I recommend having an electrician install them and the lights use low wattage candelabra bulbs.” 

Isn’t it cool when folks point at something in your house and oooh and ahhhh, and you can say: ‘I made that!’ Nicely played, Lori!

This reminds me that it’s been a while since we did a story about one of the biggest DIY trends of this decade: Make your own pendant lighting out of — well, ‘most anything. Remember this story: 24 upcycled pendant lights made from vintage treasures We helped friend Susan celebrate the launch of her venture, Original Cloth Cord Pendant and Swag Light kits…. and we even made a video, “Put a bulb in it!” Good times:
