Introduction: Repurposed Pool Table Light Bar Light
Just a quick write up of how I repurposed a pool table light into a bar top light.
Step 1: Scrolling Around on LetGo
One evening scrolling around on LetGo I came across this pool table light.
Looked awesome but I do not own a pool table so my mind started running of uses or how I could use it.
Guy was asking 50 I picked up at 40.
If all else failed I could have used it as a shop light in the garage.
Step 2: What I Was Up Against
The bottom of the light was uncovered common as they normally sit closer to a pool table and not may people would be looking up at the bulbs.
so I ran to Home Depot and picked up this light shade.
I did not take a good picture here but the ends have a nice lip so i was able to cut the light shade to fit using snips and it was strong enough to hold itself in the middle worked great.
Step 3: With the Shade Installed
here is a good picture of the shade installed.
Step 4: Hanging and Wiring
In the ceiling I just measured off the wall to the center of my bar.
Found my studs.
Installed the screw hooks as pictured.
for me wiring was a breeze. With already having a light fixture up and wired to a switch all I did was tap into it.
I still have some flexibility with height moving the chain around but all and all I'm pleased with the out come and finished product.
I will change the bulbs to a lower kelvin as right now they are much brighter/bluer than the rest of the room.
As I said just a quick write up to show you can always repurpose items even if not for what it was intended for.
happy to help or answer any questions.
