Happy Friday people !  Thank you so much for stopping by to check out this week’s Flea or Free Friday Post. I happened to be out at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and ran across this rather large basket light. The lady said I could have it for $2, so heck yes I got it. I have seen quite a few amazing versions on Pinterest and I though maybe I could do something with it.



Maybe you saw my favorite light fixture on Favorite things, if not it’s here. I took some serious inspiration from that picture and decided mine should be white too…




Final_2The before picture shows the orb light that it came with I took it out because I thought it might make it look a little dated. Right choice or no?


Final_3I made the cord cover with an extra curtain panel I had. Why buy one?


So, what do you think? My husband looked at it and said, “All white everything, huh?” I think his gut reaction was similar to mine in that I need a little contrast up in this rental! We have only been here in NC for around three months, so I just haven’t gotten around to painting yet. BUT, when I do, I think I’m looking for something that will make this stand out a little more. But yes, all white everything for now.

What would you have done with the basket? Left it the way it was or paint it another color? I’d love to know!
