Barn Light Electric Sky Chief Ceiling Light

We’re photographing Kev’s new office/our guest bedroom today, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a quick post about the ceiling light we went with.

It’s the Benjamin Sky Chief from Barn Light Electric…

We went with a jadite colored, enamel-coated metal shade, a 3-inch brushed aluminum stem, and we added the brushed aluminum wire cage on the bottom to give it a little bit of an industrial feel. The ceiling medallion came from Lowes, and we added it to cover up a bad cut in our ceiling planks (oops), and to bulk up that end of the light fixture a little.

It’s been a fun addition to the space, and we’re really enjoying the way it looks both on and off. We’re looking forward to blogging about the whole room tomorrow or Friday, and we hope to have our first overnight guest visit sometime soon, too! #HintHintMom

    Love this. Love your entire blog etc. you guys are so cool and so very talented. Your stem length is different than what they offer? Did you get yours from lowes? Did it fitbok? Thanks also maybe I missed but what color red paint is that? Thanks again, I’m a huge admirer and going to take a photo class.

      Hi Karen! Thanks for the kind comment! :-) The folks at Barn Light Electric can cut your stem to any length, and I’m going to post the formula for that red paint on our “Guest Bedroom/Home Office Reveal” post tomorrow. I have to dig it out of storage first, ha! 😀

    Okay, I love this light – but can you post a how to on adding the brushed aluminum wire cage? Cause I think that makes the light!

    • Layla says

      Thanks Stephanie! The wire guard is actually an option you can add over at Barn Light Electric! 😀

    Very similar to a light that I’ve been eying at Rejuvenation for quite some time. 😉

    I think I might actually like this one better, and the price is certainly a lot less.
