Remember those factory pendants that I hung in the garage last summer?
Of course y’all do.
A couple of gift-cards and a miss-priced floor display later, we brought 4 home for an absolute steal.
Well, anyhoo, we’d always meant to cage them, like in a factory, but didn’t want to spend the crazy money it seems to cost just for cages. More than twice as much as the pendants cost us in the first place.
Enter Jonathan, a reader of ours, who sent us 3 different sources for cages online…and ALL 3 extremely well priced.
How could we not do them now?
I ordered 4 16 inch cages from Global Industrial, and we had them in our hot little hands 4 days later.
I grabbed a few bolts with wing nuts to attach them.
They simply “pinch” together over the rim of the light fixture. It might be a little easier with 3 hands…..but I got them done.
I had thought that we might spray them red – and still may someday – until then, I just hung the plain galvanized.
For some reason, they look black in the pictures.
To change the bulb, if it ever burns out, we just reach up through the hole in the center.
No real safety reason for these….
Just like the aesthetics…
Am I right? I usually am…..
