I have put together a small 2nd retro kitchenette that I needed a ceiling light for. However, there was no existing electrical box for one and i didnt want the mess or added expense of installing one So I bought a swag light kit (also from Home Depot) and converted this light to a swag light. It was very easy to do and works great in my new space. I love the retro look
I ordered two of these barn/pendant lights ( I removed the cords) ~1.5 yrs ago to light the inside of my backyard garage. I used LED wide angle flood light bulbs and I've been pleased with the results and quality. I priced barn lights for several months and these were the best quality to price units I found. Most used old style barn lights were in the $100 price range. A friend of mine gave me an old barn/factory light that I mounted on the outside of the garage (see pic) with a homemade gooseneck for mounting. All of the lighting shown is LED technology for your info.
After installation, the lighting was exactly what we needed. We had a huge problem in the packaging. When I ordered them to be held at the store online, we picked them up the next day. We set them aside for the electrician, and they weren't opened until the electrician tried to install, 2 days before our classes started in the workspace. 4 out of the 5 lights had no cords in the packaging from China!!!! We had to drive 45 miles back to Home Depot to exchange them the day before we opened, and have the electrician another day. Cost us an additional $200. gas, time and electrician. Although we are very happy with the lamps, we are very unhappy with Home Depot's quality control.
Wanted an industrial farmhouse looking light for our laundry room remodel but preferred a more rustic finish. We spray painted them copper with an oil rubbed bronze top coat, then sanded for a rustic look. They turned out great! The lights give off a good amount of light with a 75w equivalent LED soft white bulb. We found other warehouse pendant lights that already had the bronze finish but they were either too expensive or we didn't like the shape. The shape of this light is exactly what we wanted so we painted them to make them even more perfect for our project.
We purchased 6 of these lights for our stable. We placed them between two rows of stalls. We installed "Vintage" LED lights and they look great. The metal is a little thin at the top but they are holding up. I also did away with the hanging cord.
