DIY Colander Pendant Lamp

DIY Colander Pendant Lamp

Your kitchen requires the right lighting to get you on track to accomplish the day’s tasks. From homework to list-making, to cooking, the kitchen counter is a culinary workbench.

And proper lighting – say, recessed downlighting or island-highlighting pendants – will ensure that it’s fit for all of those uses.

If you’d like an unusual pendant light for your colander, why not consider making one from a colander? Perfect theme lighting for the kitchen, don’t you think? 🙂

DIY Colander Pendant Lamp

This is a simple project that you can easily do a couple of hours. The materials needed are affordable, especially if you have a spare colander although you might want to shop for one with an interesting pattern. You see (and you will!), what’s great about this project is the unique light pattern it makes on your ceiling and upper walls when you turn it on.
