How to make a farmhouse light.

Long before farmhouse was “in”, it was very much a part of our lives.
My grandma and grandpa had a beautiful farm, and had also inherited my Aunt Essie’s beautiful farmhouse. Both were filled with antiques.
When my grandma passed away, Chris selected this old scale from her home. Years later, we integrated it into our Kansas cottage for a little farmhouse charm.
I find myself trying to integrate the farmhouse mindset into our home. Have not, want not, blending old and new.

Family heirlooms {and antiques} add so much warmth to a home. To create this farmhouse light fixture, we purchased an inexpensive chandelier and used the scale in lieu of a traditional chain.
