I was over at The Lettered Cottage (scroll way down) taking a stroll around several posts back and came upon the link for the Country Living/Hudson Goods giveaway. Oh my! Have you ever checked out Hudson Goods???? Their stuff is so amazing...industrial, rusty, vintage...love it! And then. oh my. I saw. THE light. at Hudson Goods. oh my. it was so. so. unique!
Ok....reality check...it is $149 and basically it is rusty wire on a single bulb pendant with cloth covered wire. Could this not possibly be made for practically peanuts compared to their cost? Nothing against Hudson Goods but a girl's gotta do what a thrifty, bargain hunter, junk-lovin' girl's gotta do and that is make it yourself! I just need to "find" all the components, which may be as close as my own house & Home Depot.
Of course, I'll just add this to my LONG list of to do's ;)
Besides this incredible light, I perused the website and found this stool
(Hudson Goods $259)
which looks very similar to this stool
Don't you just LOVE it when you find that you have the latest, greatest in home decor and spent hardly anything on it?! The above stool was found at a moving sale last summer from a couple who were heading south. I also found a beautiful Boston rocker in gorgeous condition for a mere $25...woohoo!
What have you found in your possession that has been featured on a website, magazine or catalog??
