Saw this baby at Target today – the Threshold Caged Pendant Lamp.  It’s petite and would be perfect in a grouping of three over an island.

  1. We have the Ikea Maskros and my neighbour has one, too. We have it in the playroom, my neighbour has it in her living room. They are beautiful! It goes everywhere – well, maybe not the bathroom. 😉

  2. So lovely – all of them! I love great lighting too. We can finally get rid of the ceiling fan in our living room since we now have a furnace and don’t need the fan to circulate heat. I cannot decide exactly what I want there though!!

  3. I love these light fixtures…all of them are beautiful…and I love the new PB pendant lights…I have seen the olive bucket lights at antique fairs recently….amazing!

  4. My dining room needs a new light. Something along the lines of the olive bucket, but I need more bulbs, a multi bucket light? Whip me one up please.

    I made my son’s girlfriend a fixture out of a colored metal colander from Old Time Pottery. Cost me $6.99 for the colander and got the guts from Lowes. Spent a total of about $15. The holes from the colander put a pretty pattern when lit.

  6. Love all these ideas…but my favorite it the IKEA fixture. You can’t ever go wrong wtih IKEA and light fixtures!

    Have a great day rock star!

  7. I just love all of these…my home could use a few! A BIG congrats on the fun Romantic Homes feature!

  8. Aweseom round-up kelly! My fave is the PBTEEN one which I also shared at Copycatchic before and also DIY- MASon JAR Lighting that I’ve seene everywhere!

    Anyway, Just need to let you know too that i posted already about the Fave bloggers’ bedside table series. Please feel free to check it ou if you have the time and thank you so much for participating and the support, it means the world to me!

  9. I love this round-up Kelly! There are some really beautiful lights here, and I can’t believe they are under $100.

  10. i was looking at lighting last night for our kitchen and 3 of these are on my final list! but i think i am going to get the globe pendants from west elm- you can get them in a set of 3 discounted and we need 3! :) and i really want the moravian star…. or the mercury glass one here… for above the sink.

  11. These light fixtures are gorgeous, Love the olive bucket one.


  12. Amazing fixtures Kelly! Just in love with the olive bucket one.My husband found a minnow bucket at a yard sale for like $5.00. He turned the liner into a lamp for his office. It really looks great lit up. I’m so tempted to make one of the enamel colander ones for the kitchen. So cute!

  13. Great collection Kelly!

  14. My hubby would like to thank you, because now I want to rip down half our light fixtures and replace them with some of your amazing finds…really he is secretly excited, I’m sure somewhere deep down in his heart :)

  15. I love that mercury glass pendant! Great round up of affordable lighting, Kelly! Thanks for sharing ~ xo Heidi

  16. This is one of my favorites pendant lamp ever http://www.d-68.com/projects/jacobsen-aj-royal-poulsen… too bad it costs more than $ 100. The lamp iron is really wonderful in a perfect country house. I Love it!

  17. Mmmm…. Mercury glass! I think that one is my favorite!

  18. Great light fixtures! Of course you know I’m a huge fan of that particular schoolhouse light. 😉

  19. I could find a place for all of them but I’m amazed that the olive bucket is less than $100. Those are hard to find (I know PB is now selling them as a “found” item) and I’ve never seen them priced under $100 as is, let alone a light. Love it!

  20. Those are wonderful!! I found a crystal chandelier for $99 so there are definitely good deals out there for those of us wit low budgets.

  21. Ohh great roundup! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the wire globe! They’re all so pretty though!! :)

  23. Where do you have the Schoolhouse Electric Alabax lights in your home? I can’t decide if I want to order the medium or large lights. I’m looking for some pictures to help me decide! Thanks!
