Awhile back I purchased a pretty little cage light from Target.
You know, when Target was still in Canada.
Anyway, when I first brought my little cage light home I set it on my secretary desk – and there it stayed for months.
I did eventually get an Edison-style light bulb to go with. But it still sat on the desk.
Finally the other day I figured out what I wanted to do with my little cage light!
You guys, it was so easy to hang and I even used power tools.
Okay just one – the drill – but still I did it all by myself!
I just hung a bracket from an old Ikea shelf centered on the wall (with anchors into the drywall even!). Then I wrapped the cord around and through the bracket starting with the light at the height I wanted first.
This project would work with just about any bracket and any cage light.
If you're not fortunate enough to have a Target near you, here are a couple of cage light options:
Hooray for something small checked off my to-do list!
In a couple of days I'll be showing you the super easy way I drew the chalkboard wall squares – no measuring, level or ruler required!
What do you think of my easy hanging cage light? Rather industrial chic on the chalkboard wall, yes?
