The words “reduce, reuse, and recycle” have gotten a workout since the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. But one of our new favorite “re” words is repurpose — finding a new purpose for an old material to give it new life and avoid the landfill. This kitchen features a perfect example of repurposing as old Mason-style ball jars become eye-catching industrial pendants.
The space is a beautiful blend of old and new with the combination of wood, stainless steel, granite, tile, and the nostalgic jar lights. To get this look, take a peek at our Vintage Ball Perfect Blue Mason Jar Pendant, part of our collection of Vintage Industrial Lights. You can customize this unique light with a powdercoat finish color for the lid and your choice of a standard cord or seven different colored cotton cords. Each of these American made jars is original and finishes will vary. These lights obviously look right at home in a kitchen but would be a great addition to a family or game room, a powder room, or hung in a cluster in a foyer.
To boost the vintage styling of this light, add an authentic reproduction Edison style light bulb. These bulbs come in a variety of shapes and styles including spiral, hairpin, and thread styles.
Love this old farmhouse piece but prefer a clear jar? Don’t miss the Ball Jar Pendant which features the same rustic styling as the Perfect Blue Mason Jar Pendant but with clear glass. An Edison style light bulb will show through the clear glass very well or you could add your own hint of color using any standard incandescent colored bulb for a fun look.
