Over the past year, I have been updating and personalizing our new home while neglecting my blogging duties (sorry Pam!). The previous owners left us with a horribly tacky brass chandelier with swans on it. I apologize for not including a picture of it, but really just imagine the worst! My decorating style has evolved to what I like to call rustic farmhouse. Oh, and did I forget to say I’m cheap too? I found this red barn pulley at a flea market for $5.00. It was definitely a steal as I had been searching for several months for something in my budget.
I’ve got to admit I was completely unsure how to proceed once I found the pulley. Luckily my husband was willing to help. We took a trip to Lowe’s and found 2 basic pendant light kits as well as some heavy duty chain and hooks. From there, it’s just a matter of following the directions on the light kit. Much, much easier than I expected.
This is one of my very favorite projects. I love this pulley, but really you could use anything to create a personalized chandelier. The sky’s the limit!
