Tumbleweed Light

I found a mess of old rusty wire in a barn.  I loved the wad of wire, but didn't know what to do with it so I left it behind.  After getting home it occurred to me to use it as a light fixture for my kitchen, so I went back to get it.  I bought an old light with several arms for light and began creating. 

1. Removed 80s glass cage-very easy a few screws and it was GONE!

2. Spray painted brass-black; became scratched after placing wire, but I think it adds to it.

3. Stuffed light inside mess of wire-didn't change the wire or bend it at all.

4. After hanging the light I thought it looked a little too rustic for my kitchen so I added the magnetic prisms I already had on hand.

5. I installed a dimmer to control the light.

The BEFORE fixture.
