Vintage Egg Basket Turned Into A Light


You can find these old egg baskets at any flea market or antique store for about $25. And they have the perfect size hole in the bottom. I took a $20 mini pendant fixture from Lowes and simply added the basket as the shade. No crazy re-wiring or anything.

    This is lovely. This is the same idea I intend to use for my outdoor chandelier using an old fan
