You might try contacting the interior designer, Betty Burgess. You might could find something like this at Scott Antique market. We provides the limewash throughout the home. Thanks for your question!

According to Atlanta Homes Magazine, Betty Burgess used the end caps off of old propane tanks to create the custom lighting over the kitchen island.

The designer was Betty Burgess for this project, you might try a google search and call her. I was unable to find a website or an email address. It has been a while but hopefully she can answer your question. Thanks for you question!

Hello Becky,
Thank you so much for the prompt and informative reply! I love the atlanta homes article on this amazing home.

My architect is suggesting an 8' x 8' island and it's taking me a bit of time to fully wrap my head around the concept.

If this is a growing trend, I'd love to see more applications.

Thank you again for the helpful information.

Karen, have him "stake it out" for you so you can get a sense of the scale, if possible. I think it will be great!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

These rusty crusty light fixtures where fashioned from old propane tanks. The result adds an industrial element to this crisp black and white kitchen.
I probably use this image way too often, but the conversion of propane tanks to kitchen island pendants is just too clever. The house is a wonderful balance between traditional luxe and contemporary edginess. Industrial pieces are an important ingredients in the mix.
Becky Harris added this to Vintage Modern: What Does It Mean?
To put it simply, vintage modern mixes old and new. But the devil is in the details. As for old, patina plays a big role. These rusty industrial pendant lights as well as the metal counter stools and wood ladder bring the vintage; the crisp contemporary kitchen amenities bring the modern.
Industrial Chic The patina of the light fixtures gains a like-minded friend in the vintage stools below.
In a large kitchen, the use of oversize industrial pendants is a clever way to create a focal point.
These light fixtures are fashioned from repurposed propane containers.
This is one of my all-time favorite repurposing projects. Those fabulous rusty and crusty oversized pendant lights were propane tanks in a former life.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Layouts: Ideas for U-Shaped Kitchens
Here's the solution if you have the space: a perfect U with an island and seating for 4! If I'm not mistaken I see two sinks, one in front of each window. That's a great alternative to the island prep sink.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Industrial
Style Secret: Open SpaceIndustrial style had its genesis in big, cavernous buildings — warehouses, garages, packing plants — so it only makes sense that an open floor plan is a hallmark of the look. High ceilings cap expansive rooms that often serve multiple functions, such as a kitchen, dining room and living area all blended into one. Smart strategy: Break up a long expanse of space with well-placed furniture. An island and twin pendant lamps visually separate this kitchen from the space beyond. You'll also want to pay special attention to creating visual echoes and a unified look throughout to avoid a jarring stop-start-stop effect.
Maggie Stephens Interiors added this to Sourcebook: Industrial Style
Industrial style can be a mixture of factory pieces, farm pieces, even school-style pieces. You don't have to pick just one. In fact, a mixture is more interesting.For authentic vintage pieces, check out garage sales, the Craigslist listings for your city's industrial neighborhood, a school or university surplus store and junk shops. Find out if your town has a Habitat for Humanity ReStore — the inventory changes all the time.Search terms: "Industrial," "farm," "schoolhouse," "rustic," "rusty" and "science" Browse industrial-style items in the Products section
Propane tanks. These rusty old hemispheres add industrial character to this sophisticated kitchen.
“I think every woman should have a blowtorch.”Whether you're finishing off that crème brûlée or finishing off your kitchen design, an industrial element like these propane tanks refashioned as pendant lights adds a dollop of the unexpected.
With its formal cabinetry, marble counters and elaborate cooktop enclosure, this kitchen could have felt a bit standoffish. But the pockmarked industrial pendants cut the fussy factor down to size.
