I have been complete obsessed with the Edison hanging lamps concept, and in the continuings of revamping my home, I want to incorporate this to it! But they are wayyyy to over price, so I found this really cool tutorial on how to build an Antique Fixture for under $25! Super excited will be making soon and sharing my own antique edison lamp!
Unfortunately, high demand leads to inflated prices. Any simple fixture that claims to be “antique” or “vintage” costs a premium. Some are worth the price, but we’ve seen simple antique pendants out there going for over $100, when the raw materials to build the fixture cost under $25.
The following guide will show you how to build your own antique swag light fixture in less than 10 minutes with materials you can buy for about $25, including the bulb.
(1) antique twisted wire cord - $6.00
(1) dimming brass socket - $10.00
(1) EZ grip antique plug - $1.50
(1) antique light bulb - $5.00
