In addition to the tin, we were also trying to come up with a lighting solution that would replace the bare light sockets we have now and look great with our vision for the ceiling. We really liked the look of Schoolhouse style pendants but they can be very expensive. We didn't let that deter us though and after some research we found some DIY blogs for how to fashion your own out of a cheap shade, some electrical conduit, a lamp base, pendant light kit, and spray paint.
