Mason Jar Chandelier

Hi Friends, how are you today?  I am great and so excited to finally share my new Mason Jar Chandelier and lighting fixture in my kitchen.  Our kitchen is very shabby n cottage chic in style and I’ve kept it close in style with our 1922 cottage.

We had some old lighting fixtures that were here when we moved in and I plan to replace them down the road but I was so inspired when I saw a mason jar chandelier project on Hometalk and knew it would be the perfect fix for our kitchen.  I LOVE the way it turned out and although pink may not be your color this was a super fun and pretty easy project and you can do it in any shade you like.

Our kitchen is a very small galley style and the kitchen nook is to the right and the dining room to the left.

Here is what it looked like before.  It wasn’t bad, but definitely not the look of our kitchen.

I probably should have taken the cobwebs off before I took the pictures but sometimes things get missed and just keepin it real…lol. 

I painted both the chandelier and the coordinating lighting fixture above our sink too.

I used Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover in Candy Pink and after using it to paint our Plastic Adirondack chairs this summer and our other Plastic Patio Chairs here I knew this paint was so wonderful to work with and has primer inside.

I don’t recommend you doing this at home, but my hubs was out of town (so not here to help me take it down) so I created a painting booth in my kitchen and with a bunch of wrapping paper and scotch tape I taped off a huge area of my kitchen so I could spray it and not have the over spray all over.

I sprayed 3-4 coats of paint throughout the day and had all the windows open and fans going, the fumes were very strong.

The hardest part of this project was cutting the mason jar lids.  You need the tops as well as the rings so that you can screw the glass jar into them on your fixture.  Our fixtures had these white plastic rings so they screwed on under the jar lid which holds it in place.

I first tried to the old hammed and nail and punched several holes and then I finally went to Home Depot and bought metal snips or as my hubs called them “tin snips”.  Wow they cut through the metal like paper.  I used the ring as a pattern and then drew circles onto the mason jar lid.

Then I took the lid and the lid rings outside and spray painted them several times both on top and under as you can see both sides through the glass.

Once they were dry I put the mason jar ring and top up onto each arm of the fixture and then screwed the plastic rings on.  They look like part of the fixture which I love.  Then I used low wattage 40 watt bulbs so they don’t get too hot.  (please note we’re not in our kitchen for long periods of time too).  Once that was done I screwed the mason jars on.

Here’s a peek at our kitchen nook and you can see our full Kitchen Tour here, during Valentine’s Season and my brother and wife gave us that vintage chandelier when they bought their house. 

 

The Inspiration came from Lauren at Blesserhouse and here is her post if you want to take a peek at that.

I am so happy with the way these turned out and LOVE them.  Everyone once in a while people comment and wonder how my husband can like or stand a pink roses themed kitchen.  He is awesome and is pretty ok with the feminine kitchen and to make it up to him I gave him a really manly sports themed Tv Room or Mancave right off our kitchen and you can see his Steelers Tv Room here.

I’m linking up to My Passion For Décor Knick of Time,  Shabby Art BoutiqueWhat Meegan Makes, From My Front Porch to Yours, Katherines Corner, Over 50 Feeling 40 and Vintage Mama, House on the Way, All Things Heart and Home, Designed by BH, Art is Beauty, A Few Miner Adjustments and Chaotically Creative and each one is hosting a great link party where there is loads of inspiration, crafts, diy, recipes, Christmas and great ideas for the New Year. 

 Thank you for stopping by and have a great day, Lisa

    I just bought the exact same chandelier in a thrift shop for the exact same purpose and then a day later I’m scrolling through the internet looking for ideas on how to attach the Mason Jars and came across your website and how to. Thank you for the pictures this will help when we put ours together for our small dining area. This was really perfect timing for us.

    I have this exact chandelier in my new home. It is missing the globes though. I’ve already painted the chandy with Rustoleums Hammered Bronze and now I’m going to take some Mason jars (I have on hand for canning) and add the globes. Thank you so much for showing me exactly how to do it. When I finally get it done I will share photos with you.

    Glad I found your blog from Facebook tonight.

  1. […] Lisa of Concord Cottage was looking to make a change to the old light fixtures that were in her kitchen. Her original intent was to replace them but then she became inspired by a mason jar chandelier she saw online to revamp her existing fixtures. All she had to do was repaint the fixtures and replace the globes with mason jars. Amazingly, it cost Lisa only $20 to make over both the fixtures in her kitchen, and they now go perfectly with the shabby chic style of Lisa’s 1922 cottage! […]
