In today’s GOOD NEWS: I salvaged a vintage globe and turned it into a lampshade! The globe’s owner – my aunt – tried for years to repair the decades-old globe (which had split apart and would no longer stand upright on its bent, rusted metal base).
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.
Homemade Charging Station Keep those cords and power strips hidden with your very own charging station made out of a ribbon dispenser box. Use a utility knife to cut a hole for your power strip cord to pass through, label the holes, and decorate the box!
