DIY Pallet Farmhouse Light Fixture

Also known as the Christmas present my husband made me.

Who knew my love language was a bunch of repurposed old stuff?

We saw something similar at an antique store several months ago. Only it cost around $700. Yikes.

So, instead, my husband found an old pallet behind a store (we just asked if we could have it) and pulled the weathered wood off. I looked for some old egg gathering baskets (this took awhile) and ended up getting two on eBay for $25. He bought rope, replica antique bulbs and two small light socket kits from the wiring department at home depot.

Baskets (I saw replica ones at TJ Maxx for $9.99 over the holidays)

Two light sockets kits

10 ft electrical wire


Light fixture thread tube (to hang light to pallet)


We love the results for around $75.

I love the warm ambiance it offers our kitchen.
