New Use: Lampshade to pendant light

I guess this is not as much a new use as it is a DIY hack. I wanted a drum pendant light above my kitchen table so I made one with a thrifted lampshade, a cheap Ikea pendant kit & bulb, and my old existing fixture.

I love looking for old lamp parts at thrift stores because they can be combined into new lamps really easily and it's a cheap way for cool lighting. Check out this tutorial from eHow if you are interested in how to re-wire.
