I’m really excited because I just moved into a retro apartment with 60’s mid century architecture. So I thought it would be fun to make some DIY home accessories to match the vintage charm. I love mixing metallic with wood to give projects and old world, yet modern feel. This light globe looks great on any office desk or nightstand and can be turned on day or night! It only took about 40 minutes to complete!
