These unique pallet whiskey bottle chandeliers can be a beautiful way to light up a flat surface, like a pool or gaming table. It took a bit of trial and error before I got them the way I wanted, but I’m pleased with the outcome.
I’m a unique person and wanted my project to reflect my style. I also wanted to create something that I could sell without having to put in a lot of investment.
How I Built these Pallet Whiskey Bottle Chandeliers:
First, I assembled various crate shapes, including square and triangular as the chandelier base. I made them out of pallet wood. You can create any shape you want. I kept them fairly rough for a rustic feel, but you could finish them in a variety of ways.
The biggest challenge was to figure out how to cut the bottom off off a whiskey bottle. The chandelier doesn’t have to be a liquor bottle. Any colored bottle will glow with the color showing through the sides, but projects a white light down onto the table, pool table, game table, etc.
I used pre-made lamp kits and drilled the chandelier bases for the wires. To finish these off, I used cup hooks to hold small chains to hang the chandeliers by.
