I just recently purchased a timber loft with 14 foot ceilings. It currently has ugly suspended track lighting which I want to replace. I would like to try a DIY version of hanging lightbulbs.
I want to buy some sockets and cords to replicate this lighting style (in picture) and hang them from the timbers. Where can I go to find cheap materials in Chicago or online?
One of our house tours last year, Andreas' Greektown Loft, showed a DIY hanging lightbulb project that Andreas did himself (pictured above). He mentioned that he just went to his local hardware store for all of the stuff. Our favorite store for any project is Clark-Devon Hardware, a place we have had great experiences in terms of selection, service, and price.
Anyone else have THE spot for cheap materials for Vanessa's lightbulb project?
