I’ve had a few people ask me how I made my basket lights and I wanted to share. I have one in our mudroom and laundry closet. It is SO easy its almost silly to blog about. 😉
You need to simple things. A basket you love, and a porcelain light. We actually used porcelain lights while in the demolition phase and had many left over. But for only a few dollars, you can pick one up at the hardware store.
This basket I used was from my mothers basement. I think it is called an antique egg basket, but I am sure Homegoods would have just what you need!
All you have to do is cut out the very center at the bottom of the basket, or with a basket like this, no cutting was needed. I just pinched the wire at the neck of the porcelain light and it sits on their nice and snug!
Oh and p.s., that is a galvanized rod I used as a curtain rod!
Thank you again for stoping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

I have never seen anyone do this, you are so clever. It’s the perfect touch!
Love this! So stinking clever and am thinking about doing this in our hallway, the entryway. Gotta find the right basket! Xoxo
