This month I featured a simple tutorial that demonstrated how to attach a custom lampshade to a pendant light fitting. If this sparked your interest in all things pendant then you are going to love the following projects that made a splash on the interwebs in the month of October!
This beady creation from Ashley Johnston was the first of the bunch to catch my eye. Ashley was inspired by a light fixture from a company called ‘Camp’, which retailed for $200. By painting wooden beads in coordinating colors and threading them onto a pendant light cord, she was able to re-create the look for only $40. Nice!
I absolutely love this vintage pinned fixture from Danika Herrick at Gorgeous Shiny Things. Danika used wood dowel pieces and sprayed them gold to achieve the metallic look. I love how with this type of pendant there are endless options for creative layouts and finishes. Great work Danika!
I dare you not to dig this veneer pendant lamp from Funkytime. If you are looking for a pendant lamp with stark sophistication look no further. Uber cool.
Check out this super cute and practical chandelier from Design Sponge. The pairing of the black and white cord with the mint green cord is inspired. This pendant could be a fun lighting option for a child’s playroom or modified to suit somewhere more formal.
And finally, feast your eyes on this elegant pendant lamp from Sarah Sherman Samuel who is contributing to A Beautiful Mess. Sarah created this pendant lamp from an IKEA dish that retails at $20. This is an excellent little project that requires only a handful of supplies. Check out more of Sarah’s work at Smitten Studio.
That’s the latest from the pendant lamp part of my brain. If you’re feeling inspired and want to create a custom lampshade for a pendant lamp, feel free to visit my Shop. Thanks for reading and I can’t wait to see what other cool pendants emerge in the month of November!
