A new addition to Seek & Find Designs is going to be an array of lighting. Depending on what kind of different treasures I can find at garage sales will depend upon what the lighting will look like. Here is a wire basket with really cute colored rhinestone flowers displayed that was turned into a "chandelier" light.
It really is quite easy to make if your up for a fun project. You just need a lamp socket with a pull string, and then attach the plug cord into the top of the socket (the socket comes with instructions for the wiring) Also, I decided to get a bit fancy with the pull cord by purchasing a vintage looking cord. I simply cut the gold pull string near the inside of the socket and then hooked the fancy pull string with the clasp that is already attached. The wire basket had to have some of the wiring removed around the base of it in order for me to wire it securely and have it lined up in the center correctly. You can attach any kind of low wattage bulb you desire. For this project, I used a "Vintage" bulb that has 40 watts. As you can see from the photo, it gives off that yellowish tint that so many of those antique and vintage lights do. You pretty much could use anything you have laying around your house for a creative light just as long as it has a hole in it for the wiring.
Well, enjoy and have yourself a wonderful day! Thanks again for stopping by.
