I would be lying if I said that I’ve never been called a scavenger. In my defense, I see things a little bit differently than most people. When I spotted these palm fronds hangin’ around on the sidewalk I first thought they might make a good hanging planter.
Well, it turned out I also needed a clever lighting solution for my kitchen and when I realized I had an old light socket cord kit I knew where this was going.
I cut a small disk of plastic and hot glued it to the back of the frond to attach it to the cord. The beauty of this corner application is that it really doesn’t matter how you hang it since no one will see the back. This solution was quick, free and super simple. My kind of fix. As a final touch I finished it off with a spray clear coat to bring out the natural color of the frond. Since the back of the frond is open it casts a really nice, diffuse glow all over this corner of the kitchen.
