What do you do when HomeTalk challenges you to find an object at Lowe’s and create something unexpected. Make something from something that usually isn’t used for that. Yeah, that’s what I said.
Industrial Cage Light Bulb Cover
inexpensive DIY with Farmhouse Flair!
After several days cruising the isles of Lowe’s, I came up with Project #3. Don’t ask what the other 2 were 😉
My mind was in the gutter…literally. This is a gutter strainer.
I know right, I never heard of these either. I was actually leaving the lumber isle headed to the restroom and and this silver thingy caught my eye.
When I saw the strainer all I could think about were those cages for the cool swag lights. And if you’re going to really get your swag on, you must have a vintage light bulb.
The gutter strainer is located in the gutter supply isle and costs less than $3. The bulb was a little over $6.
I already had the awesome green light kit.
This bulb! I can stare at it for hours, not really but it is pretty awesome.
The wire fits between these two!
While holding the outside with one hand, reach in through the wire strainer and screw the plastic bolt on. Be sure you catch the wire all the way around as you tighten. You can reshape the cage after it is tightened. It looks small but my had fit inside 🙂
