Monogrammed Galvanized Bucket Light

Hi Friends!  Happy Labor Day! Hope you are all enjoying the day.  It’a a stormy morning and I’m just sitting here watching the storm while drinking my morning coffee.  Crossing my fingers some little boys sleep in and looking forward to a day filled with relaxing with my family.  Play in the pool, work on some projects, all fun-all day…

If you’ve been hanging around here for long, you know I have a soft spot for old stuff.   I’m always trying to come up with ways to re-purpose the stuff we already have laying around.  Today, I’m excited to share with you how we created a Monogrammed Pendant Light out of an old galvanized funnel… Make a one of a kind Monogrammed Light Fixture- perfect for an outdoor area!-12- OneKriegerChick.com-1 When we were designing our pool house, we were trying to stay on a pretty tight budget.  That encouraged us to get creative with our lighting.  My husband is just as bad as I am about saving items we know will have a future use…hence the cool antique funnel…He just happened to have it in the barn. 

Let’s see how you can create the same look…

What you need…

  • Galvanized funnel or bucket with a hole cut in the bottom
  • pencil
  • drill and different size bits
  • Pendant light kit
  • Edison bulb

Let’s get started…

  1. Sketch your monogram onto the side of the funnel or bucket.
  2. Using your pencil lines as a guide, drill holes to outline the monogram.
  3. Leave as just an outline or fill in with random holes as desired.  I had planned to leave it as just an outline, but the Mr. didn’t think it gave off enough light.  This looks Awesome at night…kind of like little stars.
