How to Make a DIY Pendant Lamp

http://www.ThriftDiving.com -- Have you always wanted to make your own pendant lamp? This is how I UPCYCLED a pretty little wire fruit basket to make a pendant lamp for my thrifted craft room. Super cheap! To see more pics of my thrifted craft room, where nearly everything came from my favorite thrift store, visit: http://www.thriftdiving.com/2013/01/thrifted-craft-room.html

    At first sight, I was like, nooo, she took apart that beautiful basket. Then, I read a bit and noticed that it was broken = bummer. I love how you reused it in another fashionable way.

    I felt the same way as @The Arts Desire did. Glad you were able to reuse it though Serena. It makes such a cute light fixture. Love the shadows it creates.

    @The Arts Desire and @Z So happy you like it! Yeah, I definitely had to reuse that baby. It was too pretty to get rid of! And because of the shadows on the ceiling, I've got some other ideas for pendant lamps. Maybe something for a kid's room that would cast some cool shadows, even with colored bulbs? :) Thanks for the compliments, ladies!
