Light Bulbs – what a great idea!?

Lately I’ve noticed a lot of interesting light fixtures that are (ironically) made of broken lightbulbs.  DIY opportunity – It seems pretty simple to take an old wooden box, crate, or wire cage and fill it with a collection of interestingly shaped lightbulbs.  You can hook up a few working bulbs and throw them in to make it a functional light.  If you can’t find the right container, a stained wooden wine crate will look nice when the light is on and shining through the cracks. At home depot you can find everything you need and the employees are fairly knowledgable and willing to help.   Hide the wiring underneath the other bulbs and get creative with the shapes and caging. Here are a few examples from Club Monoco, J. Crew, and Bar Crudo in San Francisco.
