Tradig Metal Chandelier

Materials: Tradig red bowl, spray paint, mini pendant light, light bulb

You will first want to spray the bowl in the color of your choice. I did a few coats of black in a satin finish allowing several hours to dry. This piece is great because there are preexisting holes you can thread the electrical through, which cuts the work in half!

Once the pendant wiring has been hung through the chandelier you can connect the electrical wiring and viola! I must add this project was quick, easy and fun.

    I loved the idea, and combined the bowl with a NUD pendant light. You can see the end result here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151315098695631.519414.739835630&type=1&l=56ffd39653

    The shadows cast by the wire basket are part of its appeal. Terrific hack!

    this is genius, looks very cool and stylish, like some very expensive designer-piece :o ) I like it.

    It’s a cool idea, but once you actually turn it on you’re going to have shadows of lines all over the space, which I’m assuming would actually bug some people.
