DIY Cage Light

Since moving into our house, I haven't been able to truly enjoy a meal, due to the hideous light hanging over the dining room table. At first I thought maybe we'd go ahead and get a new one, but everything that we even considered was well over $100, and that just wasn't in the books for now, so... I decided to try my hand at a DIY "cage light". I basically just disassembled the old ugly light, spray painted it "Oil Rubbed Bronze", and zip tied two painted planter baskets to it. I love it so much that even when we do a kitchen overhaul, I might just hang on to it! I also REALLY love that the entire project came in under $20!
