Thrifty DIY shade replacement {using a globe}

When the thin glass shade to one of our light fixtures cracked, I grabbed a few supplies from around the house and made a new one. ;) Note: this light fixture is rarely ever used due to French doors and a window in this space as well as the dining room light flooding this small out-of-the way room too. Please take safety into consideration (perhaps low wattage bulbs, never incandescent and a high heat/temp paint or a flameproof coating. See tutorial for link.
