My Bucket Faucet Farmhouse Light

As ya'll know I've been attempting to create a cottage farmhouse look starting with my dining room, you can see the beginnings here. I wanted something unique and rustic for a light over my table . So get yourself a couple of buckets, some metal piping, throw in some faucet handles and voila you have yourself a rustic one of a kind light fixture. Previously I had a itsy bitsy globe light over the table that made no statement at all, well it DID make a statement but it wasn't a good one.  Here's the new light.

All it needs is running water for my plants hehe.  It is just the rustic touch I needed in this room.. I think it's  perfect don't you?

I'm still working on getting that mirror over the mantel. I'll be joining the following parties.....

  20. I agree with you, Teresa. The rusty touch adds a little style to the farmhouse look. The faucets look absolutely adorable! Not to mention, the buckets, they look cute also. Anyway, that's quite resourceful of you. It's good that you find ways to turning nothing into something beautiful. :)

  22. I love that fixture! I've been wanting a chandelier type fixture for my dining room, but I can't get my hubby to go for it. Maybe it's time for me to think outside the box there!
