Have you ever considered making your own light fixture? When it came to updating the lighting inside our RV, I looked at several options and quickly became mesmerized by all of the beautiful designs available.
However, with so many darn lights to update I soon figured out that DIY would be the best route to get the design I want while sticking within budget.
I had planned to share a tutorial on the first light fixture I created above our rustic modern media cabinet, but a few weeks ago my computer crashed, booooooo. And of course, I was super lame and hadn’t backed up my photos in over a month, which is the longest stretch I have ever gone without backing up my files. #lessonlearned.
Here’s a sneak peek of my light fixture inside the RV:
I think finding the right bulbs and figuring out the whole 12v/120v side of the lighting for our RV may have been more difficult than actually making the light itself, haha. (Update: Read about updating the lighting in your RV here).
On the bright side, I still have several more light fixtures to make so I’ll take new photos of the next light fixture, and share a post about it soon.
Until then I wanted to share some mid-century modern light fixtures I found inspiring that also helped guide me along the process. I had never made a light fixture from scratch before so I was pretty nervous. However, I can now say that I look forward to making more 🙂
Since we are going for a rustic modern design inside our motorhome and have rustic wood details throughout, I wanted to keep the lighting a bit more modern.
If you’re looking to save money by creating your own modern chandelier or just want to find some ideas for that next room makeover, then I hope you will find inspiration from this post.
