So we had this problem with a lack of lighting in our kitchen. The peninsula section of our counter always seemed a little dark, and the main light is behind me in the kitchen, so whenever I’d be cutting something on the cutting board or something, my body would be casting a shadow over what I was doing.
So I decided to create my own hanging light over the peninsula.
We went to home depot and got a light socket which also had a little hook on it.
So now we have another light and it’s been very useful so far and makes it brighter in here overall. It’s a good central light. You turn it on and off by plugging in and unplugging it.
I may or may not create a shade for it. It depends on whether I care for the modern industrial look, or if I’d rather have a more traditional feel to it.
What do you guys think?
I also created two standing lamps out of pvc pipe to have easily move-able lighting for photos and videos, so I’ll show you that another time. Those are pretty cool too!
