Here is my version of the often seen clam basket light fixture.
It started many months ago when I spotted the basket for $5.99 at the Christmas Tree Shops. I knew right away this would turn into the fixture for my laundry room. And was my husband shocked when he found the hole in the basket was a perfect fit for the fixture ring. So easy!
I basically took a piece of my jute fabric and weaved it through the basket, which by the way, I will be spraying with a fire proof fabric spray.
I thought I was done, but the green beaded chain was the perfect addition to my basket. I actually added this on while the fixture was in place. My arms were killing me! I took a thin piece of jute string and just wound it around the rim of the basket (that is also what is keeping the handle from hanging down).
So what do you think? A little funky, a little wierd, maybe not your taste. But I love it!
As you can see, I am beginning to accessorize the room. The construction is almost complete! Yay! Cabinet doors should be hung this weekend, counter installed next weekend and then I can finish up with some drop cloth curtains, and a really cool laundry hanger I am working on.
You might be wondering, why all of this fuss for a "laundry room"? Well, besides it being a walk through on the first floor to the patio, it's the room I spend much of my time in (besides the kitchen).
So I want to really enjoy being in there!!
Oh and the fabric that inspired the theme in the room is on my new ironing board cover.
And did you see the color of the cabinets I went with? Love the grey!!
