Country Sampler Special Edition
ADD STYLE TO A PENDANT LAMP
Bring some farmhouse flair to a standard pendant light to enhance your home’s dining area.
STEP 1 Choose a pendant lamp and shade and then find a wire basket that mimics the shape of the shade while allowing some space around the sides. Place the basket over the shade.
STEP 2 Remove the top platform of a wooden pedestal or candleholder using a saw and then discard. Drill a hole vertically through the center of the remaining pedestal base.
STEP 3 Remove the plug from your lamp and thread the cord through the pedestal.
STEP 4 Turn the fixture upside down. Secure the basket to the base of the pedestal using cable staples or cable fasteners.
STEP 5 Turn the lamp right side up. Thread a rubber grommet over the cord. Insert the bottom portion of the grommet into the top hole of the pedestal.
STEP 6 Attach a new plug to the cord, following the manufacturer’s instructions, and then hang your new fixture.
