Edison Bulb Wire Pendant Light đŸ’¡

We are custom making Pendant Lights.

We have 3 copper painted wire baskets. We can make two different styles. One has a 15’5″ cord with a wall plug in. The other style is created with a conversion kit that allows you to screw in your new pendant light into an existing ceiling can that a bulb usually screws into.

This is one we made for our kitchen. We already had this type of pendant light so we used those parts, but it is similar to the kit we would use for the others.

This is the kit we will be using. It comes in black or white and has ample cord that winds or unwinds to fit the length you prefer.

We also can make these with a cord that has a wall plug. It has a very long cord. This would work great hanging in the center of an umbrella or canopy on a deck and then running the cord to an outside outlet.

we can paint these baskets to fit your color scheme and the cords can be black or white.

And check this out!!!! Remember how I mentioned the cord with the wall plug would make a great pendant lamp for an umbrella or canopy on a deck? Well, we just had to find something around the house to use to make a shade. We found a beat up metal waste can. Danny put a hole in the bottom just big enough for the socket to go through. Then I used a fleur de lis stencil and put dots around the outside edge in spots around the wastebasket. Danny then drilled holes where all the spots were. No Edison bulb as we didn’t have another one. But, oh so cool! Can’t wait to see it lit up tonight!

Sunflower: A Vintage Jewel

I created a story about a beautiful bedroom set I was able to purchase as I was working on it. I love finding the history of the pieces I paint and/or restore and this one surely had a history.

I have recently learned more about this furniture and I have painted the first two pieces of the set, the dresser and one mirror. I call the dresser SOL Sunflower, the patriarch of the Sun God Series. SOL and his mirror are finished and for sale.

I hope you will read what I have learned about SOL and his family. He is a very unique piece.

Aging a Terra Cotta Pot with Soap and Chalk-style Paint

I ran across the idea of using soap as a distressing medium so thought I’d try it, creating a tutorial as I worked. It would either turn out fine or I’d just have to get another pot and try again. I found this pot under our deck area so I was good to go.

I think it worked pretty well! It was fun and quick to do.

I think the paint brand we sell and use has the perfect colors for this project: Missouri Limestone Paint Company English Ivy and Grannies Lace. Any chalk-style paint should work, though. I just happened to have a new bar of Safeguard soap, but any soap should also work.

Along with the pot, soap and paint, you will need brushes, and a fine sanding sponge. I like to pour my paint into containers. These were once a silicone muffin pan I cut apart.

Note: The video is in two parts due to the length of over 6 minutes in each video.

I am happy with the final result. What do you think? If you try it, be sure to send me your pics in the comments.
