When it comes to kitchen lighting, we really enjoy seeing creative repurposing. We've seen lighting made out of Weck canning jars
, for instance, and even an antique flour sifter
. But how about a pot rack?
I noticed this pot rack light fixture in a New York Times story today about a rather luxe farm in Pennsylvania. The owners have fixed up areas of the farm and made them rather luxurious, perfect for big weekend parties. I really liked this idea from part of their barn. They took an iron pot rack and threaded hanging lights through it to create a chandelier.
I can totally picture this over a sink or an island, especially for someone like me, who likes the look of a pot rack but is far too short to have one in the kitchen. (It would have to be hung at everyone else's eye level!)
