Let There Be A Basket

A little easy DIY project for you today! I have been obsessed with making one of these fabulous basket lights for my office. I love the simplicity of it but yet the industrial modern feel. These below I had pinned on pinterest - one of them even being sold for $135! Goodness me we all know these can be made so here's a little how-to! 

 So below is the materials I used. I found this fabulous basket that was actually made to look aged for $10 at TJ. Seriously the most amazing place to find baskets of any kind! Never have a seen one like this and I've been looking for egg crates for the past year! The light kit is from World Market - also for $10. If your budget is a bit bigger then you can go for the fabulous new Jute Rope Electrical Cord Swag Kit for $35. My plan to DIY the cord is to wrap my own jute around the ugly whiteness.

Did I forget to take a picture of us cutting the hole? Of course I did - so this picture is borrowed from our friends at The Painted Hive! It's so easy to cut the hole with some simple wire cutters, thread the light kit through it and wallah---!!! You have a perfectly wonderful light kit! 

Chuck of course had to check it out to make sure it worked! Now I have it hanging in my precious office at work and it's a great addition to adding warmness to the space! Feels so cozy :)
