Turn an old shutter into a modern hanging light fixture with this upcycled shutter DIY.
Today I am sharing a Color Cord Cage Light! I was so very excited to have won a beautiful Color Cord & Thomas Edison light fixture from Color Cord.com . I really wanted to use it in my bedroom as a reading light.
However, I have a cathedral ceiling in this room so knew I couldn’t hang it that way. The wheels have been turning for the past week or so. I also looked on their website & on Pinterest for inspiration.
I loved the ones that were attached to an old door or pallet. I went to the Scituate Art Festival & was on the hunt for an old door. I was able to get this door for $10!
Since I wanted to give it an industrial farmhouse look I simply gave it a wash with turquoise paint. I also found an old spool at the Fair for $3. I just attached this to the door with a couple of nails.
I ran the cord behind and over the top of the door & wrapped the cord around the spool hanging the cage light in front. I just love it! The Thomas Edison lightbulb is so cool!
