Lighting DIY: Bamboo Orb Light

There are so many incredible light options these days. Aside from the fixtures you can buy in shops, you can also create your own style that looks amazing but doesn’t cost a lot. Not only does your fixture look great but there are some amazing lightbulbs out there now that are literally designed to shine on their own. I came across an awesome light DIY that allows you to have a well-designed pendant while highlighting a neatly designed bulb.

 

I love a good DIY, especially if it’s a focal point in your space. Another great tip about lighting – it adds balance and harmony in a room and can definitely make a smaller space feel bigger. Have you tried a DIY like this? Share your story.
