DIY basket lights

Well, we’ve been out of our home for two weeks now and I’m finally getting around to blogging about our basket pendant lights…. better late than never, right?

Originally, these were inset lights.  I thought the space just needed a little something.  The space was very white and I thought what better to finish off a space than natural woven baskets?!… they just typically don’t hang from the ceiling. Lol!

This project was extremely easy and not too expensive compared to other options.

First I purchased this conversion kit from Lowe’s…

and two of these large baskets from hobby lobby… (in store you can purchase them individually instead of in sets.)

Then I cut the handles off of the baskets and ran the wire of the conversion kit through the middle of the basket.  I secured it with some twine just to be safe.  The base of the kit is much larger than the wire so the light bulb will never get near the basket.

Next we replaced the inset lights with the conversion kit.  It screws right in and is much easier than you would think.

Annnddd that’s it! Super easy and makes a huge impact!

Love always, Savannah 🖤

  • Going to bed at night knowing I didn’t contribute to any beings suffering makes my heart happy.  Teaching my children that the genesis of peace is in how we treat the ones that are most vulnerable makes my soul happy.  Vegan, eco-friendly, non-toxic Easter “egg” dying is the best ! .

I always get so many questions and comments on this rug. It’s by @primitivesbykathy.  It’s the same one that was hung on the wall at our other home.  It’s reversible, so I can change the saying. 🖤 If you are local, I purchased it from @copperwoodcompany. .

  • In this very short amount of time, apartment living has already taught us such large lessons and what’s really important.  We’ve sat and listened to the rain, read books that we’ll never be quizzed on, cooked whole foods from scratch, and I even learned to play chess!  We haven’t allowed ourselves to be controlled by money, clocks, or the opinions of the world.  We’ve truly learned to be present and enjoy the infinite healing of slow living.  I think the key to being filled with joy is finding what makes your soul thrive and giving it your all.  Your only competition in life are the things that keep you from achieving that goal: the unhealthy foods you’re filling your body with, the excuses you had that didn’t allow you to make it to the gym today, the time you spent sleeping in instead of being fulfilled at church, your ego that stands in the way of bettering your future, or your lack of allowing yourself the time to express yourself creatively.  Your competition isn’t others and it’s not their fault you let another day go by without achieving your goals.  Lifting you guys up and inspiring you to reach your goals, no matter what they are, is so important to us.  We hope our page always lifts you up and leaves you inspired weather you are trying to live a simpler lifestyle or climb the highest mountain know we are cheering for you and NEVER forget to enjoy every second of the process.  Happy Sunday, y’all ! .

  • Y’all know I’ve been on the hunt for some amazing bedding for our new home.  Well... I’ve finally found just about everything I was looking for... and maybe a little more ! 🤫😍 I can’t wait to share alllll the things, but FIRST I have to share what’s INSIDE my new pillow cases.  These new pillows are amazing and nothing less.  I may or may not have just taken a much needed nap on these babies on our first rainy day here in Vestavia Hills.  The pillows are from @sable.official.  They are super soft plush fiber fill, adjustable loft and incredible for neck pain !  If you are looking for new bedding check out @sable.official. They have amazing options of all kinds. .

  • Happy hump day !  I just finished a blog post on raising our daughter vegan.  You can see more at thegrayolivebranch.com.  I hope it answers some of the many questions I get about her vegan lifestyle.  Most importantly, I hope you find it uplifting and encouraging.  I never want to force the world to go vegan, just to try and find balance in life and consider choosing more plant based more often! 🤗

I will put the link to my post in our bio and later today in stories I will tag some of my favorite inspirational plant based accounts. 🖤🖤🖤 .
