DIY Globe Pendant Light

Here’s a quick and easy way to create your own globe pendant light, a thoroughly modern twist on a classic piece.
Materials Needed:
One old globe (or half a globe, really)
One pendant light kit
Copper tape
Razor blade (optional)
Spray paint (not shown)
Wiring tools (not shown)
With the globe free of its stand, carefully look to see which half (top or bottom, or in this case north or south) is in the best condition.
Carefully open your globe along the equator. Use the razor blade here if necessary.
Taking care not to spray any of the globe’s outside map, spray several light coats of your spray paint on the inside. Let it dry thoroughly.
See how the spray painted interior really makes the light feel more polished and bright?
Turn on your new globe light!
