DIY: Concrete Pendant Lamp

Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web. A bag of concrete, cordless drill and old plastic bottles might seem like a random collection of things you could find near the entrance to your garage, but combined in the right order they can be some of the most stylish lights you'll ever hang in your humble abode. Ben Uyeda from HomeMade Modern has an excellent DIY walk through of everything you need to make concrete lamps similar to the ones you saw in that designer store, but at a fraction of the price.
