This is a new series I’ve decided to start to help educate you on all those pretty wedding ideas we’re all pinning over on Pinterest. We know it’s the #1 tool to find inspiration and I want to make sure you get a full understanding of the ideas and what it takes to pull off the weddings you love. The basic premiss of the series is that I’ll find a popular wedding image on Pinterest, I’ll talk about The Romance: Why we all love the idea, The Reality: What it means to pull off the look yourself while giving you some inside industry info, and finally how to Overcome the reality. This is our second post in this series and it’s all about these fabulous galvanized pendant lamps that have, again, been pinned thousands of times.I couldn’t find an original source on this image so if anyone knows who to give credit too, please comment below. I always give credit where credit is due!
What’s not to love about this wedding/event. Fabulous vintage galvanized tubs turned lamps give this tent a rustic and industrial feel. The mixed flower arrangement gives a softness to the industrial. The rope and basket accents(distant background) are the hints that set off the whole look.
Lowes and other local retailers sell these tubs for under $20 and they also happen to carry lamp kits (a light bulb socket attached to a lamp wire & wall socket) and thick rope! All you need to do is drill a hole, attache the lamp kit, and decorate the wire with rope right? Nope.
Sure you can find all those materials at a local retailer and yes you can make them into lamps yourself. Two things to consider though.
So there you have it The Romance, The Reality, and how to Overcome galvanized wash tub pendant lamps . Have an image you’d like me to cover? Post it on our Facebook page, with a link to the source, and we’ll give you all the goods!
