Out of the ORDNING’nary

Materials: Ordning colander, galvanized pipe 

Description: Kitchen light fixture using Ordning colander and galvanized pipe. Used a Lowe’s pendant light fixture and galvanized pipe. Cut a hole in the bottom of the colander to fit the fixture through. The colander fits just like a lamp shade, and we used an LED light to keep the heat down. My wife loves it.

    Awesome. Does the light fixture screw onto the pipe or is it just a cord hanging out or something?

    Great idea. I’ve been a MAJOR fan of IKEA lighting for years. There’s a bent plywood fixture above my sink I bought a decade ago, which still looks amazing today!
