Pendant Lights

After remodeling our kitchen there were still a few things we wanted to update. First up was the lighting. We were never completely satisfied with the lighting setup we had because it was sort of a combo of old lights and new, was mixed and matched a little, and really didn’t have much personality. After doing much searching around, we came across these lights that were good vintage/rustic lights but would still go with our modern kitchen. These pendants are just the first of three sets of lights we will be updating…as you can see in the first picture, a new overhead kitchen light is in order along with a vintage chandelier for the dining room. As you can see from the last two pictures, we went with an “Edison” style light bulb to further the vintage/rustic theme. Overall, I am happy with the lights, especially once we have the other lights in the area to match. In the future we may go with a bulb that is a little bigger to fill the cage a little more. If you have any questions or would like help doing a similar project, feel free to leave a comment below or contact me.

We have been really busy around the house the past few weeks, so be on the look-out for a few more posts this week.

  1. Just got this pingback. Lights look great! So did you piece them all together from the links I shared? Any feedback?

    • Thanks! We ended up getting a few things from our local hardware store, but for the most part we used the links you put up. They made everything super easy and the companies all had very good prices and were really quick on delivery. We searched around but we found the places you listed to be the best, thanks for the research you put into them!

    Hi there – I’d love to know more about how you did these lights! We’re looking to do something similar in our powder room 🙂
