Our DIY Modern Hemp Pendant Light

To say we've been busy lately would be an understatement! What with all of Tom's medical residency application stuff going on and the baby's arrival looming closer and closer, we've really kicked things into overdrive around here! ... either that or we're both nesting like crazy, hah!

So, can you guess what I spent the majority (no joke) of my weekend doing?

Yep, I made that light fixture - and Tom made the wiring. Both weren't the easiest tasks to accomplish - but hey, we're okay with that. Live and learn, right?

Oh, and did I mention that we LOVE the new light fixture?

Because we totally do. And we hope that our little guy will love staring at it, too!

It adds so much warmth, texture and a little modern-earthy vibe to the nursery, which is a perfect balance to all those cool grays, blues and whites that we had going on in there.

And check out what it looks like at night!

Sorta like a woodsy disco ball. And we heart the pattern it throws on the ceiling, too.

Stay tuned for a step-by-step tutorial on creating and hanging this light fixture tomorrow, along with a cost breakdown (and how much we saved by DIY! Gotta love a little extra change in those pockets).

  1. Awesome! You did such a great job! The pattern on the ceiling is really pretty - I bet the little one will have lots of fun looking at that.

    It's kind of funny that the pendant light reminds me of a nest and it is part of your nesting process. Just a funny coincidence! You really are nesting!

  2. Wow! LOVE the way it looks at night. i cant wait for that tutorial!

  3. That looks amazing, many kudos. I can't wait for the tutorial!

  4. WOW that is the best DIY version I have seen! Great work!

  5. Oh Wow! That is so very awesome!! I'm so impressed!! Great job!
