$1 Light Fixture

The other day I showed you this fun find from the rainy day shopping trip. It's actually a vintage heater scored for just a buck.


Here it is, rewired as a light fixture and hanging in all all $7 (including light kit) glory! It found a home in a small hallway in Steph's home. I love the rustic industral feel of it. It really suits the space!



I think it needs an Edison light bulb or at least a clear one. What do you think? Not bad for a $1?
