Sometimes a whole table is too much for a narrow hall. We are sure you could DIY this table yourself. Grab a small table your favourite power tool. Some paint and l brackets a voila a neat little hall console table to save a bit of space.
I really like this idea for an office or a library. Convert an old globe into a pendant light! Seems easy enough. Buy a lamp kit at your local hardware store, take apart a globe and drill a larger hole for the light. Put remainder of light together.
