A solid DIY lighting project is a great way to add some personality to any blank space, and I'm especially digging this one because it's created entirely from easy-to-find (and hack!) materials from the craft store.
Inspired by a West Elm piece, Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body figured out how to create this cool bent wood pendant lamp using embroidery hoops and floral rings which you can snag at any craft store.
I sure love a big, raw-ingredient, made-from-scratch project, but I love these clever reuse ideas that require very little tools just as much.
