EZ DIY R EPURPOSED CHEESE GRATER TURNED INTO PENDANT LIGHT If you want to add a touch of whimsy to your kitchen, a cheese grater pendant light is sure to grab attention. This homemade light will delight your guests, and it is an ideal way to recycle your old cheese grater(s). No wiring is required, so anyone can make this nifty piece. Make one to use as task lighting in a dark corner, or make several to hang in a group in areas where more light is needed. INSTRUCTIONS: SUPPLIES YOU WILL NEED: - Medium-grit sandpaper - Towel (optional) - Spray paint (optional) - Drill - Drill bit - Light kit - Hook - Extension cord (optional) 1. For a more rustic look, leave the grater as is and skip to step 3. For a less rustic look, sand an old cheese grater with medium-grit sandpaper to remove rust, if desired. Rinse with water, and dry thoroughly with a towel. 2. Spray paint the grater with a high-quality spray paint if you wish to change its color to blend in with your dΓ©cor. Apply two coats of paint, and allow it to dry for several hours before you proceed. 3. Drill a hole through the center of the handle with a drill bit large enough to create a hole that will accommodate the cord on your light kit. Drill a slot from the hole in the center to the outer edge of the handle. Sand the edges with sandpaper to remove sharp edges. 4. Tie a knot in the cord of your light kit 4 inches above the light socket to allow the bulb to hang down ₯ΉΝ₯‘”Ρ‘”‘••Ν”Ι…Ρ•ΘΈM±₯‘”Ρ‘”½ΙΡ‘ɽ՝ Ρ‘”Ν±½Π½ΈΡ‘”)‘…Ή‘±”έ₯Ρ Ρ‘”­Ή½Π‰•±½άΡ‘”‘…Ή‘±”ΈI•Α•…ЁѼ΅…­”…́΅…Ήδ±…΅Ά…́‘•Ν₯Ι•Έ(ΤΈMΙ•ά„‘½½¬₯ΉΡΌΡ‘”•₯±₯Ήœέ‘•Ι”ε½Τέ…ΉΠΡΌ‘…ΉœΡ‘”‘••Ν”Ι…ѕȁ±…΅ΐΈQ₯”)„­Ή½Π₯ΈΡ‘”½Ι…Ёё”±•ΉΡ Ή••‘•™½ΘΡ‘”±…΅ΐΡΌ‘…Ήœ…Ёё”‘•Ν₯Ι•‘•₯‘ΠΈ)M±₯‘”Ρ‘”½ΙΡ‘ɽ՝ Ρ‘”‘½½¬ΝΌΡ‘”­Ή½ΠΙ•ΝΡ́½ΈΡ‘”‘½½¬ΈA±ΥœΡ‘”±₯‘Ё₯ΉΡΌΡ‘”)Ή•…Ι•ΝЁ½ΥΡ±•ΠΈUΝ”…Έ•αΡ•ΉΝ₯½Έ½Ι°₯˜Ή••‘•Έ)5%11!%4M5109%9)…Ή!I]I) ½ΥΙΜ€θ)4½Ή‘…䀡Ι₯‘…δ(άθΜΐ…΄€΄ΨΑ΄€°)L…ΡΥΙ‘…δ€ΰ…΄€΄ΔΑ΄€°)±½Ν•LΥΉ‘…δ€Έ(ΠΰΤԁA99LY11dI=€΄<Ή”4₯±”\•ΝЁ½˜4₯±±‘•₯΄½ΈH½ΥΡ”€ΠΤƒŠˆ€ΰΔΠ΄ΜΠδ΄Τΐΐά€΄±•…Ω”΅•ΝΝ…”)έέάΉ΅₯±±‘•₯΅Ν΅…±±•Ή₯Ή”Ή½΄)‘•Ι₯Ρ…”ΡΌ…‘΅₯Ι”€΄ΑΙ½‘ՍΡ́ѼΡΙΥΝΠ+Šˆ ‘…₯ΉΜM…έΜ+Šˆ₯±•Μ+Šˆ …Θ€˜ ‘…₯Έ=₯°+ŠˆAΙ½Ρ•Ρ₯Ω”±½Ω•Μ+ŠˆAΙ½Ρ•Ρ₯Ω” ½½ΡΜ+Šˆ!•…Ι₯ΉœAΙ½Ρ•Ρ₯½Έ+Šˆ!…Ή!•± ±½έ•ΙΜ+Šˆ …¬A…¬ ±½έ•ΙΜ+Šˆi•ΙΌQΥΙΈ)5½έ•ΙΜ+Šˆ…Ι‘•ΈQΙ…Ρ½ΙΜ+ŠˆI₯‘₯ΉœQΙ…Ρ½ΙΜ+Šˆ]‘••°]•₯‘ΡΜ+ŠˆMΉ½ά ‘…₯ΉΜ+ŠˆMΉ½ά ±…‘•Μ+ŠˆQΙ…Ρ½Θ5½ΥΉΠ)MΉ½ά ±½έ•ΙΜ($+Šˆ!•‘”QΙ₯΅΅•ΙΜ+ŠˆAΥΝ )5½έ•ΙΜ(Δΰ+Šq½½9•έϊt€΄΄5…䀴΄έέάΉ‰•…ɍ½ΥΉΡΙ坽½‘Ή•έΜΉ½΄+ŠˆI½Ρ½Ρ₯±±•ΙΜ
