So, we decided to participate in this fall's edition of the Pinterest Challenge! We actually have a couple of projects that we'll share in three different posts.
The first one is this DIY lamp we found on Pinterest. We immediately thought it would look great in our kitchen! The picture below is from someone else who originally made the lamp (their blog is here).
My mom had an old mason jar and lid, and we found a lamp shade similar to this one (might be the same one) at Target. We bought a light kit at Lowe's and Jonathan put it together! It actually seems to be pretty easy to make a lamp! So, here are some pictures of the process (excuse the poor iPhone quality of these pictures!):
Jonathan started with the Mason Jar and lid...
He drilled a hole in the Mason Jar lid
The light kit comes with "stoppers" (a few different sizes) that fit down in the hole. (You can use old bottles, etc. to make lamps with a kit like this one.)
Then, he put the light kit together and put the shade on!
The lamp looks great in our kitchen!
