so cool! im gonna try to make a triangle shaped one, though :)<br />
I have a lamp already, very simple black stick thing.&nbsp; I think I'll make a total beaded shade instead of the canvas though;&nbsp;I have a lot of handmade&nbsp;glass beads that would look great!&nbsp; Thanks for the great ideas, the best ones are the ones you can make your own!
Great pics!&nbsp; They tell it better than words can.
nice instructable, but all you really cover is how to make a lamp shade, not a lamp itself. The shade could go on just about any existing lamp, so why bother with a kit at all... if you're not describing how to build the lamp?<br /> <br /> Personally, I have made several lamps from scratch, without kits; the supplies you need (power cords, plugs, light sockets, metal or pvc pipe, pipe fittings, various types of switches)&nbsp;are all available at most home improvement stores (Ace, Home Depot, Lowes, etc.). There is no need for a kit...<br />
