I was majorly wowed when I clicked over and saw these eye-catching copper barn lights Kirstin of Kojo Designs created using IKEA pendants. Here’s from Kirstin: “Since the copper barn lights I kept falling in love with were way out of our price range, we figured why not try to use a $30 IKEA pendant light to recreate the look. I was thrilled when it actually worked.” These truly are gorgeous and require only some spray paint to replicate!
