If you’d like an unusual pendant light, why not consider making one from a colander? Perfect lighting for the kitchen. 🙂

DIY Colander Pendant Lamp

This is a simple project that you can easily do a couple of hours. The materials needed are affordable, specially if you have a spare colander although you might want to shop for one with an interesting pattern. You see (and you will!), what’s great about this project is the unique light pattern it makes on your ceiling and upper walls when you turn it on.

Great idea?
