Barn Light Electric: industrial & unique

15 comments:
I did a couple of posts a while back
 about this little laundry room
It has some really fun and fresh elements,
 but one of the best things in here is the big galvanized light fixture
 with the bright red cage 

I bought it from a great lighting resource:
We used similar galvanized fixtures called the Atomic Sconce on the front and back porches up in Ojai
This little guy retails for around $189

Here, below, is the front porch
 The vintage mail box is used to leave notes for guests and workers,
 when we're not around.
Barn Light Electric has a blog too...doesn't everybody?
And they did a little post about this porch which you can read here
There are now doing ceiling fans 
I love these!
This one retails for $349
Do you need a pendant?
Made from the tops of recycled acetylene canisters.
This little cutie is around $149
The catalog is full of great ideas.
  With all of the different goosenecks and shades you can use your imagination and come up with something very original

So that got me thinking about my next project
Here are the elements:
A vintage toaster...
and a kitchen colander

Can't wait to share the finished product!

One last thing...
a huge thank-you to these wonderful bloggers:

&

If you haven't already checked out their blogs you really should
&
 to all of the new and not so new friends who have joined me in the last few months,
I am so happy to meet you and I love all of the great comments!

See you next week

  1. Kelley these are great! It has me so sad (again) that I walked right by some old car jacks at Goodwill once. I got out to the car, drove away, and said - you know, those would my fabulous lamps. I turned around, went back in the store, only to see someone walking out with them! When I asked if I could buy them from them, they said: "No, these are going to be lamps for my daughter!" And I thought - darn, someone else is as brilliant as me! LOL! Anyway - obvious this is brilliant - love the reuse and the way it all looks, just gorgeous! Can't wait to see what happens next with the toaster and collander - knowing you, it's SURE to be fabulous!

  7. Hi Kelley,

    Loved seeing these lights...I think sometimes lights can be overlooked. I am dragging my feet as I don't have my own blog (yet). Will have to see what I can do!!! Can't wait to see what you do with the old toaster and the colander.
    Take care

  10. Hi Kelley - I happened upon your blog via 24 Corners & it's great. I am a huge fan of industrial lighting, but your right, that red gave that piece an extra dash of charm. Looking forward to checking out their website. Thank you & I will be back ~ dMp

  12. Your laundry room was one of the early posts I read - simply great! I just finished a lighting class at my school - who knew there was so much to know. I now check out lighting where ever I go!

  14. A new hydro power technology is being developed by Sarfraz Ahmad Khan of Pakistan. In theory these hydro plants would not require a reservoir and would have a minimal impact on the environment. They could be run side-by-side in rows and would be much cheaper to build, operate and maintain. Sarfraz has high hopes that his ideas could revolutionize hydro power in his country and across the globe.
