  3. What a creative idea! It definitely says vintage farmhouse. Your sign is fantastic too! I’m a new follower.

  4. Lourdes says:

    I love the chicken wire light fixture – gives me a great idea for my entry way – My home is a split level and the light fixture wiring is right at the entrance with a short stairway to the left of it – so I need something that is not bulky and this is perfect! thanks for the inspiration and instructions!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Lourdes! I’m so happy it’s inspired you to make your own! It’s not bulky at all!
      Enjoy! 🙂

  5. M says:

    Blessings & <3

  6. Wow, This is amazing! I have been racking my brain trying to find out what to do in my kitchen! I am so doing one of these! Thank you for all the awesome instruction and pictures! Looks amazing in your laundry room!

  7. All three of you girls are on fire! Awesome projects. Love them all!!!! The new light fixture is uber cute Shayna. Just perfect 🙂

  8. Laura says:

    This is so cool, and I’m going to attempt to do this for my kitchen. What a creative mind you have 🙂

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Laura! I am so happy that you are going to make one for your kitchen! Let me know how it turns out! 🙂

  9. Jamie says:

    You have got to be one of the most talented bloggers I follow, Jennifer. I am always amazed by your projects and creativity. But I’m even more amazed at the quality of what you make. This light looks like something you could go to the store and buy, not a DIY that was made with embroidery hoops and chicken wire! I love each and everything you post!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much for the SUPER SWEET comment, Jamie! I am so happy you love my projects! I’m a bit of a perfectionist DIY’er (hubby is too), so we try to make everything as perfect as possible. I’m just happy when it works out! 😉
      BIG hugs to you!

  10. Gorgeous! I love it Shayna! you are so creative as always! 🙂 & it makes your laundry room feel more complete! 🙂 I love it, love it, love it !!!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Ingrid! I agree, it makes our laundry room feel more complete! 🙂
      Thanks for the sunshine!

  11. April Hoff says:

    Might be my favorite $30 Thursday project or yours yet…and that’s saying a lot, because I always love your projects! You made it look so professional and finished! LOVE THIS!!!

    • Shayna says:

      Awe, April! THANK YOU! I love it too… I walk in there just to stare at it! And today’s laundry day! 😉

  12. I love it. I agree with Jamie above about yours looking professional. I have seen a few lights made with chicken wire but they usually looked too funky for me. :0
    I am pinning this to save and maybe get around to myself. Thanks so much!

  13. Tania says:

    I love this! You and your chicken wire!! LOL! Seriously though, the light cover looks so cool!


    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Tania! I know… I have a thing for chicken wire and I’ve enjoyed challenging myself to find ways to use the roll! 🙂

  14. Okay I could hardly get over my shock and awe as I was reading this post… I am sooo impressed and inspired by your creativity! Wow!! Have to share on my facebook page:)

  15. Love! Love! Love! I’m so doing this!!!! It turned out awesome!!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Meg! I’m so happy you’re going to make your own! Let me know how it turns out! 🙂

  16. I think this is a fantastic idea! And your tutorial is also really great. Makes me feel like I might be able to do this too (as much as I dislike working with chicken wire! Actually, I think the chicken wire has it out for ME! Lol). But, anyway, beautiful job! 🙂

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much, Denise! This is pretty easy to make, but the chicken wire does like to bite a bit! 🙂

  17. Tina says:

    This is the coolest thing in DIY lighting I have come across. I think I can actually do this! I am pinning, and came over from my friend Shannon’s blog at Fox Hollow Cottage. Thanks for sharing!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much, Karen! I’m so happy you’re going to make your own! 😀

  42. Audrey Corrales says:

    I just saw this post perusing the web and wanted to know the light that you used in this project, is it some type of pendant light?

  43. […] exciting news! A few months ago Woman’s World contacted me and asked if they could publish my Laundry Room Farmhouse Light in their […]

  44. Mimi says:

    INGENIOUSLY BRILLIANT & perfect for a laundry room or mudroom. Love, love, love. (Can say it enough)
    As usual, your DIY photos/instructions inspire & make it a do-able project. (I think this qualifies as an “IKEA Hack” — you used a cheap Ikea product to make a more expensive & lovely product from another source). Thanks for generously sharing your idea & how to duplicate it!

    A note — I don’t think your instructions EVER confuse me . So you might want to restate (clarify) your “rings” comment — you said you “removed the inner rings” and in the next picture said stained them. It took me a third read to get what you were saying (I couldn’t see your dots); even though I could SEE what you did in the photos, I thought your description meant you “discarded” the inner rings & used the outer rings . Crafty DIY-ers will easily figure it out. Less crafty or less visual people might be a little confused A clearer way to state that would be to say, “I only used the inner rings” Second note – did you save the outer rings for some future project or did you trash/recycle them? Do you have a DIY/crafting “supply stash” in your basement? Do you have something in mind for the outer rings? I find lots of uses for the inner rings, but rarely (if ever) for the outer rings of embroidery hoops. Would love to see what inspired ideas you might have .
    Thanks again.

  45. Your chicken wire light looks amazing! Love it.. so clever and soooooo inexpensive compared to other lights.

  46. Lindsay says:

    This is beautiful! I’m wondering if you used 1-inch or 2-inch chicken wire? Couldn’t tell from the photos.

  47. Congratulations! I love the light fixture. We have a tiny little entry way from the backyard that leads into the kitchen and to the basement. I think this would be the perfect place for your Farmhouse Light! Thanks for the inspiration!

  48. Tiffani says:

    Love your laundry room! Quick question- did you have any
    Shaking issues with your washer and dryer on
    Your diy pedestal?

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so very much! Our washer does shake a bit, but I’ve never had any problems with the pedestal. It’s very sturdy. I hope that helps. 🙂
