I'm in the process of remaking our 70's ranch into a turn of the century bungalow, at least a little bit of the interior. This includes the living room and dinning room. The dining room will have (almost finished) 50" tall VGDF wainscoting with a plate rail, the fireplace will be the subject of another thread, and new lighting.
The cost of period fixtures that will fit nicely into a home with 92 1/2" ceilings is very high and they are few in number. So, I decided to make my own! Jan had already picked out the pendant light she wanted over the kitchen sink so I picked up an additional four to make this ceiling fixture. Simply four pendants hanging from one base. Total cost $160. Not bad considering what I was seeing on the price tags of some other fixtures. Also below, a sneak peek at the wainscoting. Woods are VGDF and ebonized walnut.
