There’s a really great store in Pittsburgh’s warehouse district called Roxanne’s Dried Flowers. She has beautiful home and garden accessories, and of course amazing dried flower wreaths and arrangements. A year or so ago, I saw a light fixture in her store that I fell in love with. (I wish there was one featured on her website so that I could show you!) The light fixture was made from a circle of vintage double-loop ornamental fence which was lined with grain sack. Rusty fence + vintage fabric = LOVE.
I made it a mission to find a section of this fence (I wrote about the fence here) so that I could totally copy the light fixture for my dining room. I did get the fence – but it’s part of the coolest garden-gate-fireplace-screen ever, so there is no way I would dismantle it.
I seriously need to find some more of this fence. Anyone know of some they’d be willing to pass my way??
Since I got impatient, (of course I wanted to try to make it before the house tour) I settled for garden fence from Home Depot.
I found the grain sack fabric online from Calico Corners. I really debated the fabric at first – I thought maybe since the fence is white I should have used a lighter-colored fabric. But the look has grown on me.
I also worried that it was too big, but I spent lots of time on Pinterest looking at dining room light fixtures and was encouraged by gigantic light fixtures that looked awesome.
I love how it greets me when I walk through the door – charmer!
I’ll share all of the details in my next post. It was super easy and inexpensive.
Thanks for reading! Much love…
