With spring in full swing now, you may have succumbed to a case of remodeling fever. It’s quite easy to catch once you throw open the windows to a warm breeze and dust off the patio furniture in anticipation of backyard cookouts to come.
But perhaps your budget has other ideas. An easy way to add new life to your home decor without breaking the bank is to consider the details in your home. A simple thing like switching up your hardware is one way to change the look of your space and it doesn’t require professional help! Adding new drawer pulls in the kitchen or a new toiletry shelf in the guest bath might be just the thing to satisfy your need for a new look.Read More
Earlier this week, we visited with designer Cheryl Sottile in a post featuring a kitchen renovation in the Florida Keys. Cheryl infused tropical hues into the space with our Ivanhoe™ Dino Porcelain Pendant Lights in a creamy Jadite finish. Today, we cross the Sunshine State to visit another one of Cheryl’s project sites, this time in Sarasota where she tackled transforming a former oyster bar into a Mexican restaurant.Read More
When Featured Customer Ray moved his family of four from Illinois to California a couple of years ago, he knew they would need extra storage space. Their modest, 1,700-square-foot home has no attic or basement — space they’d grown used to having in their old home. So the solution was to build a barn on his property in San Luis Obispo.
“It’s a 2,400-square-foot, corrugated steel barn that we use mainly for storage while we plan to build a new house on the property,” Ray says. “Plus it’s a great place for the pool table!” Ray picked up on the look and feel of the corrugated steel when he customized his new barn lighting by selecting a Galvanized finish for the Ivanhoe Pendant Lights over the pool table.Read More

You may recognize many of the classic barn light fixtures sold at Barn Light Electric Co.®from your favorite TV shows and movies. Regardless of the genre, today you can find a movie or TV show with vintage inspired barn lights in the background.
For example, in the classic sports drama Rudy, the lights in Notre Dame’s football locker room resemble our Ivanhoe Sky Chief Warehouse Pendant. Although set in the 1970′s, Rudy was filmed using popular lighting styles from the 30s-60′s. Porcelain barn lights like these were commonly used in stadiums or industrial warehouses and factories, but today they can be brought into your living room, kitchen, garage, or front porch for a nostalgic look and feel.Read More

Barn Light Electric 16″ Radial Wave Pendant, 96- Galvanized, Black Cord Hung.
Prices As Shown: $143.00 each
Summer is a time for family gatherings and relaxing with close friends. Whether it’s a birthday, family reunion, or just a lazy Sunday afternoon at home, you can bring a touch of rustic country charm to your kitchen. Consider accessorizing with vintage flea market finds, stylish lighting, and even some delicious homemade cake!
These days, tattered and worn furniture shouldn’t be discarded and mixed matched chairs are totally acceptable. Burlap is all the rage, and consider yourself lucky if you can snatch up a few colorful grain sacks. Bright soda crates bring in color and can come in handy for storage or carrying items to and from the table. Throw in some hand made bunting for a fresh look, top it all off with a homemade jello cake, and your table setting is complete – well, almost.
No room – indoors or out – is complete with out lighting! For this particular setting, we chose a 16″ Radial Wave Pendant from Barn Light Electric. Galvanized is a great finish choice if you have a more rustic or country home. Its unique metal finish resembles early wash bins, baskets, and cookware and is an easy way to bring that look into your space. This unique wavy appearance originally provided light to early 20th century gas stations, but now it can add a fun new look to any room with its historic roots and nostalgic flair. Whether your need is for exterior or interior lighting, this classic piece of Americana is available in coordinating sconces and goosenecks for additional lighting around the home.
For interior applications, this pendant can be selected with a cord hung option. This allows you to easily install your fixture – it’s even ideal for sloped, angled, or crooked ceilings (for those of you with older homes). The cord hung option will allow for a perfectly level light to drop in above tables, counters, or entryways. For wet, outdoor mounting options, you can select a coordinating galvanized stem. This ensures that moisture does not interfere with wiring and allows you to hang this pendant on the porch or around the garage.
