Rustic, modern, masculine. All the things I like to see in one mighty DIY project.
For my money, Poppytalk has knocked it out of the park with this leather pendant light project. I love that it differs from other pendant light projects - which drill often convert existing objects into pendant shades with a cleverly placed holes - by creating a new "shade" from raw materials. Yet, it still remains simple enough to be able to make several in a weekend.
Plus, it requires a small collection of only ten tools materials and tools you can likely already have. Just add leather. The raw leather finish remains timeless and will work in any room, especially if you have white walls and clean open spaces.
Oh. AND? This is a great solution for renters that can't install big hanging lamps at home! It's small and easy enough to install and remove as needed.
Can you tell I really like this one?
