It’s monday. & not only is it monday, but it’s the monday after a holiday weekend. & let’s face it mondays are a little rough & even more rough after a holiday. I call it a holiday hangover. So, I’m back today with a super easy, but super cute DIY so I wouldn’t overwhelm you while you are recovering. This DIY Industrial Pendant light hanger is part of a larger project, but let’s just talk about the pendant hanger today. I found a door at our local thrift store the other day & wanted to do something fun with it, more on that later, but part of it was adding a light to the door. Here is what I came up with…
The light was a pendant we already had lying around the house from Target & we built the pipe fixture that the light is connected too. To build the DIY industrial pendant light hanger we used a galvanized pipe found at Lowes, a galvanized base plate, & a 90 degree galvanized elbow. We simply attached the pipes together & mounted the base plate to the door. Right before mounting the baseplate to the door we drilled a hole so the chord could be strung through the back of the door. We then strung the pendant light through the pipe & through a hole in the door in the baseplate & we had a light mounted to the door. Now, stringing the pendant through the pipe might be a little difficult if there is a plug on one end, thank goodness Mr. LMB knows how to do electrical work because he was able to detach and re-attach the plug on the pendant.
You can do this with any pendant light & you can choose to use copper pipes, galvanized, or even painting pipes to fit with your decor as well. You can also choose different size pipes & different parts as well, but this is what I chose & I’m really happy with it. I love the mix of metals & the industrial rustic look that this door has. After attaching the pipe for the pendant we gave the door a little fresh paint with Behr Premium Plus Ultra in ultra pure white. The paint made it look fresh & made the door look like it hadn’t been sitting in a dump anymore!
Such an easy DIY project & you can mount this pendant hanger to anything from a door, a board, window, & so on. So many options. What do you think of the Pipe pendant holder?
