I got this idea from a $129 lamp from Pottery Barn (Last Picture) – but I will not pay that much for a lamp – since I know that I can make one for so much less.
I had the lamp kit from a pervious ceiling lamp that I created – and left over wood, the pipe was left over from some kitchen plumbing work that I did for my mom, so the only cost was the tissue paper that I covered the lamp shade with…
I made sure and covered all of the lamp cord with electrical tape to give it the extra coat of protection for when I screwed it to the base, and the glue that was used was mat glue – so it is fire resistant, the tissue paper is on the out side of the shade…
All in all I am very happy with the outcome and extremely excited with the cost – which was less than $4.00! There are two of them for that price!!!
I would have to say that this was a very fun project!
