10 DIY Light Fixtures

I’m close to finalizing our lighting selections {I know, I feel like I’m a broken record because I keep saying it}. But it’s true. There’s just one or two lights that I’m still trying to decide on. Since lighting is on my brain, I thought I would dedicate the next several posts to light fixtures and some good lighting options I’ve come across.

With our building company, we are given a set amount to spend on light fixtures. Since we have this money set aside, we’ll be purchasing new fixtures. But, as I’ve been doing research, I’ve come across some great light fixtures that you can make yourself for a fraction of the cost of buying new.

If you have mad diy skills and are good with power tools, learn how to make this Robert Abbey delta knock off lamp from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs. I would never know this wasn’t the real thing.

Here are some other pendant lights made from industrial materials. Check out these diy camper jack pendants made from, you guessed it, camper jacks. Copper lighting is really popular right now and the color fits great in this bathroom.
