  1. Bead Cage Light

    From the album Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    My bead cages finally turned up from China, so I made a quick light out of one of them. I have three.. they would make good ball pendants over an island or over bedside tables.... I just punched a hole in the top for the bulb wiring added a necklace chain and done.. The cage opens so you can change the bulb.

    This is the trim detail.. Nail Art 3d rectangles and copper tape.... I like this light from this angle.
  3. From the album Mini Furniture Rehabs & Builds

    So I'm still on a lighting kick... I bought these cheap plastic lights from China a while ago... They were boring as is, but had good lines. I tried painting them silver with metallic acrylic and a brush... NOT successful!.. So I bought some aluminium spray paint and gave them a good coat. Unfortunately the bumpyness left from the original paint job still shows on this tester lamp. The rest will only be getting spray paint for a smoother finish. I also added some copper tape and some nail art rectangles to the edges before painting, to add a bit of detail to the plain shade and make them seem a bit more chunky and industrial. I added jewelry wire to the inside of the shade to form a simple bulb cage.  Sorry for the poor quality image of the makeover.. I resized this picture down quite a bit to match the size of the light in original form and it became very pixellated..

I added jewelry wire to the inside of the shade to form a simple bulb cage.  I think the 2.0 version would use aluminium flat craft/jewelry wire instead of copper tape. The tape wrinkles due to the shape of the shade and it doesn't look that great in places. Also, I'd like something with a bit more depth.. It's hardly worth the effort because it's so thin it doesn't add much to the overall look. I need something slightly chunkier..
