The kitchen renovations have begun...... and already there's so much dust, rumble and decisions to make. 

One such decision, is the lighting that will go over the island.  We've chosen to have two pendant lights, that will illuminate the area designated for sitting at. 

I saw these inspirational ideas on Remodelista - old kitchen utensils transformed into light fixtures.  I'm not sure if any of these would be right for our kitchen but love the re-use of something that is no longer needed.

These are designed by Baileys Home, made using recycled wine bottles cleverly chopped in half while the other half becomes a tumbler. Great idea.


In all honesty, as much as I love all the ideas using something recycled and re-used, we'll probably go for similar to the above - ceramic rise and fall coolie from Baileys Home.
