VIDEO: Make an Industrial Edison Style Chandelier

DIY Chandelier with Tutorial Many of you have asked about my DIY industrial chandelier. As I promised, here is the tutorial for my dining room, and now kitchen bar lights. The base of my chandeliers are made from a recycled coffee table & cabinet door. The vintage reproduction electrical parts I found on Etsy at Snake Head Vintage. I used the satin nickle light sockets and twisted cloth wire in clay for both of my chandeliers. I also purchased three amber tubular light bulbs for my kitchen chandelier which give a nice warm mood light. For the larger dining room piece I used twelve 20-watt tube bulbs that I purchased at my home improvement store and added a dimmer switch. It is perfect for over the dining room table. Here is a printable materials list and step-by-step to go along with the video tutorial. Enjoy the video and let it inspire you to make your own version of a vintage industrial chandelier. Cheers! ~ Lia

  2. Hi Lisa! Love the chandelier! I was inspired by you video and made a slightly different version of it (added cage) for my dining room. But, I have not been able to mount it to the ceiling! I was wondering if you did anything special for the bigger one (from coffee table?) to mount it to the ceiling.
    Again loved the video!
    Thanks!

    • Thanks! I mounted it with the ceiling mounts the pop open and give a lot of strength. Again as in the video, I had someone help me who knew what he was doing. ;-)

  4. This is a really well done tutorial. I’ve wanted to make a fixture like this for a long time. Thanks!

  5. Wow, I LOVE this! I’ve been starting to see these Edisson bulb light fixtures crop up in a few upscale restaurants here in NYC too. I bet there will be many more out there thanks to your great tutorial Lia! You’re such a trend-setter :)

  6. You are simply amazing and never cease to amaze me with your crazy skills. Lucky me, I get to see it in person tomorrow! :)

  7. I love this chandelier. We are redoing our kitchen and I think we will attempt this DIY project. I painted my cabinets annie sloan paris gray and because of your yellow stool in your gray foyer I redid an old buffet that will be my kitchen island with yellow. I really enjoy all of your projects and the beautiful images. You are an inspiration. I want to try and make some flowers for the upcoming spring which is a bit away in the Northeast, but I know it will eventually come.

    • Thanks Maureen! I love Paris Gray. Share photos of your kitchen when you are done. So exciting. Maybe making some paper flowers will help encourage the spring to begin. At least inside your home. ;-)

  8. Thanks for the tutorial!!! I love your dining room table too – did you make it, or did you buy it?

    • Thanks Julia! I LOVE that table and I wish I had made it. . . hum, sounds like a challenge to me. I bought it at West Elm. It is the Emmerson table.

  9. Gorgeous! I love it! Truly amazing.

  10. Great video, Lia. You really helped to put the entire project in focus for me. Thank you so much!

  11. I’ve followed you for awhile and finally need to comment! I have never come across a blog where I pretty much LOVE every single diy or idea that’s posted…until yours. I love your style, all your paper diy/printables, and your other projects (like this one). I appreciate so, so much all the freebie printables and the tutorials. I *love* your blog and your style! Thank you so very much!!!

    • You just made my day Katie! What a sweet note. I have such a great time making and designing so to hear that others LOVE it… sigh… you are the best.
