This is a lamp for my kitchen done with a laddle $ 10 and a plate of plastic.
Bill of Materials:

. A metal ladle;
. A plastic plate;
. 60 cm of transparent cristal wire;
. A mignon lamp;
. A socket (for the lamp);
. Ruller, Pencil, Calliper
. A Dremel

Step 1: Drill the Ladle

Get the ladle and find the middle of semi-sphere. Mark.
Measure the socket diameter and mark it on the ladle, using a pencil.
Now, get the Dremel with a cut disk and cut out the hole.
Use the Dremel to sand the hole.

Step 2: Drill the plate

Make holes in the plate for the passage of the wire and the two screws.
Thread the wire through the center hole and knot.

This is a really slick idea, however I disagree with maintaining the handle (strictly aesthetics).

The use of this as a desk lamp however makes a bit more sense, with the ladle handle being the "arm".

Good job either way

Thats a nice idea, even more so for a kitchen.
I suggest trying to take a better close up picture, then adding it to the intro step? I think that the main picture does not do the lamp justice.
I agree with gmjhowe: It' a very nice idea, but your first picture should be your best one of the finished product.
