Its been two weeks since I posted anything… sorry. Austin City Limits happened and I managed to attend both weekends. Because I’ve evolved into this festival junkie, but OH MY GAWD! It was bananas! I have just recently re-adjusted my sleeping pattern and finally finished this, sigh….
DIY | MOD DIAMOND PENDANT LIGHT
Here’s what you will need:
3-Way Socket w/ Turn Knob
Light fixture cord
2- 3/8 in Round hardwood dowel
Metallic Silver spray paint
Glue (I used Gorrilla Glue, but hot glue will also do the job)
Start by cutting the hardwood dowel using a hand saw into the following sizes:12- 6inch | 6- 9inch. Create a hexagon using 6 of the 6 inch sticks, and glue them together.
This next step is just like playing with Legos. Take the top of the 3-Way Socket and the 6- 9inch sticks, glue each stick at every corner of your hexagon first, then to the top of the socket.
Pull the light fixture cord through the top hole of the 3- Way Socket. Then…
Separate the metal ends of the light fixture cord, take the bottom of the 3-Way Socket and unscrew the (two) screws on each end. Wrap each metal end to each screw and tighten it with the screwdriver.
Then simply attach the two 3-Way socket top/bottom together, and pull the light fixture cord back.
You will now need to glue the other 6- 6inch sticks together to make the bottom point of the diamond…(Shine bright like a diamond…RIRI stuck in my head!). Again glue each stick to each corner of the hexagon and then together to make the point ^^^^^^^.
Now spray paint the crap out of it, and make a little dance because your almost done!
Attach the bracket to your wall with a power drill or screwdriver, add a light bulb and wrap the cord in/out of the bracket and let it hang! You now have a minimalist, chic pendant light that will bring more light into your home.
