Let there be a light..

I am in the process of redoing my kitchen but I wanted to show you my new light. I do not have a light over my sink so I constructed this one from an old funnel and made a cord cover for the cord and tied jute bows on it. I think it turned out cute! found funnel at thrift shop for 2.00.
1 lamp kit
white sheet cut and sewn for the cord cover
jute for ties

 total for light 9.00
