This is cool and cheep to do. Find an old lamp shade at the thrift shop, strip the fabric down to its cage. Spray paint it if you want. Hard wire a pendant light fixture in ($20 at lowes) and tada!! You can also buy knock off ornate ceiling pendants at Lowes for $20 to $60.
The latest decor craze is the repurposing of vintage items into accesssories for the home and garden. Create an interesting kitchen chandelier with an assortment of ladles, spoons and sieves. Leslie Stolfe onto Favorite Places & Spaces
