This DIY Modern Geometric Ceiling Light is an affordable way to DIY a HUGE statement light!
I introduced you all to my good friend Heather when I shared her house with you all. Today I’m sharing one of the MANY DIY projects that her and I have tackled together!
Heather and her husband just recently finished the third floor that they added onto their house. She wanted a brass geometric light fixture like this one that she found on Amazon.
After some searching online, she came across Vintage Revival’s tutorial for making a giant geometric light fixture. We followed Mandi’s tutorial loosely, and ended up creating this gorgeous modern geometric ceiling light.
I’ll start with our supplies. Heather purchased these hollow brass rods here. They brass tubes and they are part number 1145 and they are 1/8″ x .014. She purchased them in the 36″ lengths and used about 20 of them.
We started by cutting some of the brass rods into different lengths with a pliers. Then we cut some 6′ lengths of the galvanized wire and threaded it through the brass rods.
Once we would have three brass rods threaded together we would create triangles by twisting the wire together. Then, we’d use the galvanized wire to attach the triangles, creating a large geometric shape.
There was no rhyme or reason to how we created the shape, it was just an artistic process of piecing the triangles together. Once we had a large brass fixture, we attached it to the pendant light on the screw in the middle of the light.
I would say that this finished light has about a four foot diameter. In a room with these high ceilings it’s perfect, but this fixture could be made as big or as small as you’d like. In our case the longest brass rods were 3′ long.
I’m sure that you’re loving every bit of this room as much as I am. From the modern beds, to the geometric rug, to those gorgeous quilts that her mother-in-law sewed for her kids. I rounded up sources for many of the items and am sharing them below. Just click on each image for more details.
DIY’ing this light saved Heather a bunch of money and allowed her the freedom to build it precisely to fit this room! If you’re considering DIY’ing a light here’s a few other DIY lights I’ve made in the past:
- DIY Metal Basket Light
- Kitchen Pendant Cage Lights
- Metal Farmhouse Industrial Light
- ORB Chandelier from Garden Baskets
- Industrial Light from Metal Work Light
