For our October wedding, we used a lot of mason jars for decoration I just can't have enough of them! You can use them for all sorts of cool things! So...since I have so many sitting in the basement just waiting to be used, I decided to research possible DIY light fixture ideas for our kitchen and dining room. A few months ago I was inspired by my friend Aimee at http://themeyersdbq.blogspot.com/ , whose husband made her a light fixture out of mason jars.
Here's what we've got so far.....
|this beauty used to hang above my brother and sister in-law's dining room table and when we were visiting them last weekend I told them about our plans. They brought this up from the basement and said "you can have it!" I think they were just happy to get rid of it. :) So....we're going to do something like this maybe http://modernmarthas.com/2011/03/27/diy-cottage-chic-chandelier/ I'll paint it a fun color. Maybe turquoise or something? Are you surprised?|
|my thrifty hubby found 3 of these at Lowes for $3 each! He's hoping to make something like this http://www.fromourhidingplace.com/2011/01/pottery-barn-inspired-mason-jar.html out of them. I have no idea how....but I'm sure he'll come up with something. I'll keep you posted! :) We did spend some time in Lowes one day looking at all the necessary parts we would need to make the exact fixture in this blog, but we decided $100 was still a little too much for us to |
spend right now. I'm hoping Ryan's idea will work!
