DIY Industrial Whisk Pendant Lamp

DIY Industrial Whisk Pendant Lamp

When we first saw this whisk lamp on Emmas Designblogg, we were swooning (but incredibly fearful of the price tag). Lucky for us, Kimberly at JUNKMARKET Style created an easy to follow DIY tutorial so we can all add this industrial chic lamp to our kitchens. An overview of the instructions is after the jump.

Below is an abbreviated version of Kimberly's instructions. Visit her post at JUNKMARKET Style to see the full set of instructions with related photos.

Materials:
Vintage Hobite or other industrial wire whisk
Pre-wired pendant lamp with glass shade
Crystal
Light bulb

Tools List:
Wire cutter
Needle nose pliers

After removing the cap from the wire housing on the end of the lamp and feeding the wires through the neck of the whisk, the cap is replaced to the wire housing.

Then, preferably with an extra set of hands, the glass light cover is slipped through the wires of the whisk and secured to the lamp housing.

Voila! Whisk pendant lamp! We think it might be fun to fore go the light cover and use an Edison bulb instead like the lamp in the kitchen from Emmas Designblogg. Either way, this do-it-yourself lamp is going into our inspiration file.
