Anthropology Inspired Hanging Lamp

26 August 2010

I asked Yanet if I could feature this months ago, and then got so behind I didn't, but your wait is over- not that you knew what you were missing...  Now you will know, do you want a cool Anrthopology inspired lighting fixture for less?  Check out how Yanet from 3 Sunkissed Boys made hers: 


For a while now I have been waiting for Anthropologie to mark down this wonderful lamp.  I love the lamp but I really didn’t want to spend $148 on it.  Have I mentioned that I am cheap thrifty?

It’s still not on sale so I was super excited when I saw that Ashley Ann, of Ashley Ann Photography, had taken on a project to recreate this unique pendant light.  This is her version of it.


She did a great tutorial on it.  (Side Note: I love everything Ashley Ann does.  I think she's amazing.  I completely blame her for starting my own blog.) Check her out her blog for the tutorial, her beautiful photographs, her adorable babies, DIY and more.

My neighbor, Alanna, found a great egg basket for me at our antiquing excursion this past weekend. It was perfect for the Anthropologie knock-off re-creation!  Here are some pictures of my final version and along the way.

These were white and I spray painted them with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze.

And the final product.

I love how much brighter the hallway now looks.  

I haven't forgotten about the freebie find I mentioned earlier this week.  It just needs to be "tweaked" before the reveal and I haven't had time to do that just yet.


Have a radiant weekend!

Isn't that such a "bright" idea!
I love it, and it is so unique!

We loved this idea too -- and about a year ago we did our own lamp quite like this... for much lower cost then the store version!
you can find it here.

Oh I just love this! I actually bought this a few months ago to turn it into the same thing, but I have no idea to go about it...the holes are much smaller, do you have any ideas?
