I made this Modern-Antique Pallet Chandelier from a large Oak 4×4” pallet stringer that had some excellent aging and splits. I hung it with some aged chain after adding some modern LED lights.

Use found parts and make your own Modern-Antique Pallet Chandelier:

First, I gently sanded the 4×4” Oak stringer to remove large splinters but was cautious not to remove too much character. Next, I evaluated the stringer. It had large splits, so I had to be careful where I drilled holes for the lights, or I risked splitting it into two pieces. Then I inserted some leftover LED lamps after drilling holes to fit the fixture bodies and recess the lights the way I wanted. I installed two large screw eyes and attached some leftover chain I had to transform these leftover pieces into a Modern-Antique Pallet Chandelier.

I finished off the piece with some wood oil.

Editor’s note: Terrific idea – and quite stylish too!

Safety tip for anyone considering making your own Pallet Chandelier: Be sure to find a stud to securely anchor your lighting fixture to. Oak stringers are HEAVY, and we want you all safe and sound for many years to come!

Les fils et douilles visibles au dessus et les nœuds de la chaîne ça gâche un peu Autrement l’idée est sympa :)
