HI!

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:

Shelve bracket

3-Way Socket w/ Turn Knob

Light fixture cord

Lightbulb

2- 3/8 in Round hardwood dowel

Metallic Silver spray paint

Glue (I used Gorrilla Glue, but hot glue will also do the job)

DSC_0091Other tools:

Power drill

Screwdriver

Hand saw

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.

Like dis…

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.
