The PS MASKROS pendant light by IKEA is not exactly demure or in need of any gussying up, but it's an ideal candidate for customizing because it requires a lot of assembly to begin with so if you start tailoring it from the outset, you'll find it doesn't add all that much more time. Check out some of the many ways people have used the MASKROS base and then given it their own twist:

Talk about a completely different look - Matt of According to Matt crocheted colorful flowers and attached them to the spoke ends of the light for a hip modern/retro mashup.

Mette of Ungtblod had a MASKROS that didn't quite survive a move from home to home, but she brought it back to life in a completely new way for her daughter's room by attaching colorful tissue paper flowers.

Meg Caswell of HGTV used the MASKROs in a total makeover of this space. She added discs of wood which were spray painted gold on the inside to give the room a warm glow.
