Howdy! Ha this been a long week for anyone else? I feel like I started the week with so many ideas projects, but somehow along the way I slowed down. Yesterday, however, I did manage to get out of the house and mosey on over to TJ Max.
I found these AMAZING metal black lacquered pencil holders and thought that they would make excellent lighting fixtures for the bathroom.
I removed the white lighting circle tubey thing (I don't know the proper term) from the lighting fixture and used it as a guide for how large of a hole to drill into the base of the metal pencil holders.
Next, I drilled a series of small holes around the guideline.
I used needle nosed pliers to finish punching out the circle.
Then I stuck the white lighting circle through the new hole and screwed it back into the pendant lighting fixture.
Finally, I screwed the bulb back in and VOILA!
Originally I wanted the fixtures to be a bit larger in scale, but I could not find anything the right size around town or online. I totally dig these fun new lights, and cannot wait to find the perfect mirror and accessories for the rest of the bathroom.
Thanks for reading, friends!
