This gallery is from a project I did this last weekend. I went to the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore (this is an easy way to help the community as the proceeds go to helping families in real need) and picked up a cabinet door that had no cabinet.

I then stopped by the local hardware store and bought a junction box, some light sockets, a spool of wire, some gromets, some chain, and some lightbulbs. I offset the holes I drilled on either side of the board to make it more interesting, and hung every other light bulb at a different length from both front ways and sideways. A little bit of sweat and no tears later I had a beautiful chandelier for the kitchen.

Let me know what you think in the comments.
