You don't need to spend thousands of dollars to get a classy, beautiful light fixture. Sure, you could drop a lot of coin on a crystal chandelier, but come on. Who are you, Louis VI? You can save money and get something that's much more with the times than that at the same time.
Just look at this ReGlow lamp. Beautiful, isn't it? Now look closer. Yes, it's comprised of a bunch of empty soda bottles. It's a lamp the classiest hobos in existence would own. The lamp itself is a ball of light that has holes for you to screw the bottles in, which you supply yourself. It's a clever and surprisingly nice-looking lamp, one that I wouldn't mind hanging in my own apartment. And I'm not even a hobo!
