I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
So pretty! Glue fake flowers to the bottom of a tall vase (or to stones you could drop in), fill with water, and top with a floating candle Gorgeous and you could use any color to fit the room you put it in -- would make a good centerpiece
