I needed a light over my small dining table and searched for something different that didn't need to be hardwired. Everything I saw in retail stores was same old and expensive. On a recent antiquing trip I saw several rusty wire basket lamps selling for $250. I knew this was an easy DIY and found a rusty old clam basket that would give me that shabby eclectic look. My husband smiled when I brought it home (happy that he didn't have to hardwire it), and off to Lowe's we went to get a light kit and antique bulb. Quite happy with this DIY project with a final cost of $60.
