At Apartment Therapy, we love the ingenuity and wow factor of a great hack. Here's a DIY from the charming new blog House in the Woods that literally made me gasp. This industrial chic pendant started out as something very different. Can you guess what it was?

It's the Tradig bowl from Ikea!

Instead of buying another pricey wire chandelier, Amy Geer used a can of spray paint and a lamp kit to turn her fruit bowl into the perfect pendant. And, she notes, since there are pre-existing holes for the cord, the project is a snap!
