BEFORE - see the Walla Walla lamp pin on this board - easily convert to this! AFTER Bohemian beaded lamp DIY. Part old jewlery, part old lamp. What if you used ribbon, or junk jewlery also in one tone, like 'pearls' or 'jade' type jewlery!
I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
