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. 

Step 3: Finishing

Peel the ends of the wire and plug in the socket.
Attach the socket to the ladle and connect the lamp in it.
Connect the wires to your electric installation, and turn it on.

Sorry for my english. Is my first instructable too.

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.
