I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
A good idea for a small bathroom, under hanging shelves for things like cotton balls, cotton swabs, etc. Also great in the kitchen, for a spice rack over the stove. Just hang jars from bottom of the cabinet.
