Giant Whisk Light FixtureDecember 17th, 2008 in member junk
After seeing Kimberly's fantastic fixtue I vowed that if I ever saw one of these I would snatch it up and make one too. Well I can't believe I found one so quickly but there it was sitting in a box full of other baking items...I got the whole box for $5. I could hardly contain myself. Next I had to find the right pendant fixture which I thought would be really easy but wasn't. I found one I loved but it was $45 and that was not going to happen. After looking around for a few days I found this Halogen light fixture on sale at OSH. I think it looks pretty good but I still like the other stainless steel one better. Maybe this will grow on me. One good thing was that because it had the rod instead or cord or chain I took the top plate and the shade off and slipped it in from the bottom, then reattached the top plate, prised open the whisk parts and put the shade back on. I think I had it easier than Kim did. So this is it kids. I wish I could hang it in my kitchen but I don't really have the right place so it will go into the shop. Bye for now, Geo
PS the wreath was made by gluing Christmas balls around the frame on one of the many tart pans I picked up at the same time!!
