I'm sure we would all love to refurbish our homes, but not many of us can afford the cost of expensive new furniture.

Even if you're just adding one statement piece, it can get seriously pricey. But as one woman shows us, you don't have to break your bank to have a cool light fixture — you just need a tree branch.
