This DIY pendant light made by Jessica at Mad in Crafts is so sleek and chic you’d never guess it actually started as… two cheap plastic bowls! Crazy, huh? Jessica gave her Dremmel a workout drilling all the holes into the bowls to create the modern geometric design. She says, “…for the cost of a few plastic bowls and a lamp kit, we now have a chic hanging accent light that looks much more expensive than it is!”

Kelly from View Along the Way has a major crush on faceted lighting and décor. Fortunately, she also has a brilliant husband with mad woodworking skills who was able to create this dodecahedron light fixture, which is made of “30 pieces of wood cut at very exact, weird angles.” My head hurts just thinking about it! Kelly’s whole laundry room makeover is simply stunning, but this little light steals the show!
