If you watch Secrets from a Stylist, you may have seen Orlando Soria design this fantastic "Orb-Lando" light to compliment a homeowner's art collection. Good news: Orlando has posted the easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions on his hilarious and helpful blog.
It will probably take the better part of an afternoon, but it's worth it. The light looks artsy and contemporary and will cost significantly less than a similar light at a store. Plus, you can easily customize the size, making it big for a dining area or smaller for a library nook.
In addition to being good-looking, the galvanized wire light is simple enough for even novice DIYers, which may inspire you to tackle more difficult projects in the future.
