#WestElmKnockoffs Perforated Globe Pendant Light
A few years back I made a pendant lamp inspired by a pricy West Elm light. I bet you can't guess what I used to make it!
This beautiful pendant light had very humble beginnings!
I started with two cheap plastic bowls from the grocery store. I glued them together with super glue and used duct tape to create the pattern.
I used the guide attachment on my Dremel to make sure I wasn't drilling the holes too large.
Next I spent a few hours with my Dremel, drilling dozens of holes inside of the pattern I created with the duct tape.
I cut out a hole that was big enough for my IKEA pendant light kit at the top of the shade.
I also cut out a larger hole at the bottom of the shade so that more light could escape the bottom.
Finally I coated the whole shade in spray paint that coordinated with our home's color palette.
All that was left to do was to add the light kit and hang it up!
Not bad, if I do say so myself!
