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.
Dean's Antique Mall in Carthage, Missouri has got to be one of the best flea markets around. One of my favorite places to thrifty shop. (Tracy) Good sign for a flea market, antique mall, or craft show.
