If you don't already have one languishing in your home office begging for a revamp, you can usually pick up a vintage globe at your local charity store or op shop. Even easier, a quick search online via Ebay, Etsy , National Geographic store or more locally Curious Planet should net you one too.
Most globes already have holes in them from their original wooden base or stand but if not, depending on how much light you're after, all that's needed to create a stylish vintage pendant light is a pair of carefully cut holes in the top and bottom of your globe a pendant light cord kit (Tip: use this as a guide for how big to make your top hole).
Here's a helpful how-to video from the DIY divas at Coral:
Add your own fun details such as a vintage-style filament globe or coloured light bulb - perfect for a kids' room. Best choice however is an LED bulb as they're less likely to heat up inside the globe over time.
Group a few together or hang a single globe in your home office to maximise desk space.
