Light me up.

Just came across these fantastic DIY Light ideas from one of my favourite blogs ‘Trendey’

Here are more inspiring pendent lights…

This one by Droog is beautifully designed. The form of the milk bottles combined with the soft light, creates a whimsical feel. The light created an almost becomes frosted effect (as if it is filled with cold, cold milk!!)

Mason Jars are definitely becoming more prevalent in interior styling – they have endless possibilities (I will save that for another post). This mason jar  hanging light, exudes a modern farmhouse feel. A great DIY idea for a rainy day!
