The kitchen light’s are coming! The kitchen light’s are coming!…and I have no real idea what they will look like or whether they will actually work, except that in my head they are totally brilliant.
I needed three pendants to hang over the new island unit but didn’t want to go down the industrial look, not because I don’t like it..I just wanted something very different.
Also, I’ve realised over the years that I have a passion for folk art..an art form we don’t take seriously enough here in the UK. All the images here are typical examples of British canal art – the traditional means of decorating canal boats and barges. I think it is stunning, ingenious and totally covetable.
So I’ve commissioned three milk churns to be painted just for me by my favourite canal art painter…and they’re finished!!
Seriously. Can’t. Wait. More details when they’re here.

Hope they are indeed ‘brilliant’! 😉 Always had trouble with lighting – either they look lovely but don’t light much, or feel like an operating room….
That is my only risk now..my mother asked what were the lighting qualities like..and I said zero!! Praying they work as well as they look…only time will tell! xxxx
This is a great idea. I love folk style too – it is a nice change from all the beige and grey everyone seems enamoured with these days – in interior design as in what they wear.
Hear, hear. They remind me of folk embroidery xxx
This is such a unique idea in so many ways! They look beautiful. How are you going to turn them into lights?
The plan is to solder on the lid, take out the bottom and then put a hole in the middle of the lid for the flex, the weight of the churns will be held on brass chandelier chains…thankfully I have inventive/creative builders who will help!! xxx
That sounds like a great plan 😀
