A Unique Light For The Studio

Remember when I found this chicken line feeder in Canton?

Yikes, has it really been 2 years? It's been sitting in the barn waiting for the day the studio was done so it could become part of the decor.

You see, I figured it would make the perfect over the worktable lamp. All we had to do was run wire through the pipe and put sockets in each "shade".

And I was right. Bruce got it wired and ready to hang a couple of weeks ago. 

Then this weekend, we went and got the rope, hooks, and toggle bolts to hang it.

Whoop! It's even better than I imagined. I have the perfect industrial, crusty light hanging over my worktable.

Just check out all the light over the table!

Another project that got done was hanging metal pipes for curtain rods. Then I clipped drop cloths on for the curtains. While they will stay open most of the time, it will be good to be able to close them up when needed. 

I hung up these small metal shelves my MIL pulled out of a neighbor's trash too. There are 7 of them. They will hold craft paint bottles perfectly.

The rod and galvanized buckets came from IKEA...perfect for holding brushes, pencils and markers.

Hurray! Three more projects crossed off the list! 

Next time, I'll be sharing what Bruce and I came up with for canvas storage. It is awesome!
