Paper Pendant Lights

Materials: Orgel Pendant Lamp Shade

Description: Purchased track lighting rail from Lowe’s and made a custom electrical splice in box that connects cord to 110V rail. I dropped the Hemma cord down and used twist tie to adjust length to create a custom lighting set over dining room table. Used with dimmer switch, the lights dim down to create a intimate dinner setting. The table can be adjusted to seat 4 or lengthened to seat 10. Table was also purchased at Ikea.

    The cords come from Lowes. They come in White and Black for about twenty dollars. You can also get Silver or metallic clear coated pendants for about thirty.

    Really nice work, did you simply paint all the cables or do they offer some which come in black as well that I have not noticed.

    The cords in your picture appear to be black, not white. Are these black lamp cords? If so,where did they come from?

    Lamps always fascinate me. Especially ones that hang from the ceiling. They simply set the perfect ambiance.
