Tune in tonight when Chicago’s Lincolnwood Fire Department is rescued — from a dull and inefficient kitchen! Alison Victoria, host of the DIY Network’s Kitchen Crashers, saves the kitchen and gathering space with a complete remodel featuring bright red countertops, subway tile backsplash with red grout, three new stainless refrigerators, eight leather recliners, and a massive dining table with a fire hydrant base. And to light it up even better than Mrs. O’Leary’s cow, how about some Barn Light Electric Galvanized Warehouse Pendants and our own Mig Retro Steel Industrial Pendants!
“We love this new space,” says Fire Chief Mike Hansen. “The flow in the kitchen is much better, the recliners are great, and it’s just a nice homey feel.” Gone are the standard, four-bulb fluorescent lights and in their place, our 17″ galvanized warehouse pendants complete with a fire engine red wire cage to complement the table and red countertops. And over the island, two yellow Ivanhoe™ Mig Porcelain Pendants which represent something the firemen use every day in their job.
The Mig Porcelain Pendant comes in nine finish colors, and each one of these repurposed and eco-friendly fixtures is unique with its own industrial look. Choose a standard black cord or pick a colored cotton twist cord for even more retro style. The American made Warehouse Shade is also completely customizable with your choice of more than 50 finish colors and add-ons like this wire cage or a cast guard and glass.
“We just love the whole redesign of the space and it was a great experience working with the DIY team,” Mike says. “We appreciate all of their efforts to make the space more accountable. It’s nice to have new things.” This episode of Kitchen Crashers will air May 23 and again on June 26.
