An individual I know actually made her own caged lights to hang above her dining room table. She mounted three large wire baskets on a plank of wood. It came out great! Here is a tutorial from Whipperberry’s blog with step-by-step instructions for a similar project.
What you need:
- A Metal Basket
- Pendant light cord set
- Pendant light conversion kit
- 3/8″ non-metal clamp connector
- Step drill
- Vintage light bulb (optional)
- Round metal file
Step 1: To begin you need to drill a hole into the bottom of your basket.
Step 2: the edges were pretty rough so he filed down the edges with a round metal file.
Step 3: Place the clamp connector into the hole and secure.
Step 4: Cut the plug off the pendant light and feed the cable through the clamp. Secure the clamp.
