Olive Oil Can Light



A very simple, yet stunning, ceiling light for the kitchen or dining table. Taking your basic olive oil can, we added the really simple Ikea lamp socket and cord, to make a fixture ready for anyone!. no need to be an electrician. Put a  hook in the ceiling(if you don’t have one), hang it, plug it in and you are in business. Or romance. Or cooking.

There used to be a restaurant up in Yellow Springs, Ohio I went to that had these lights. Except they were all upside down. Found out the restaurant simply can opener-ed the tops, so that was that. I did the bottom after using the oil.

For the record, it’s 10 inches tall, 6 inches across and 3.5 inches deep.

If you have cans, I can make more. Or make a custom one for you. Just ask. But for now, a few more pics.
