Picture of Laminated Paper Pendant Lampshade

I decided to try and replicate one of NZ designer David Trubridge's amazing pendant light shades (be sure to check him out if you haven't already. His work is stunning) while I was off work for a week with the flu. And I had to use what I had around the house cause I was too crook to drive for supplies.

Originally I had put it together with double sided tape and it held up nicely for about a year until recently, a few pieces started to came apart, I thought I'd better do it properly so I took it apart, glued the entire shade back together, took photos of the process and here we are.

It's a little rougher looking now, I was too lazy to scrape all the double sided tape off before gluing. But any roughness disappears at night as the brilliance in a Trubridge design outshines.

Step 1: You will need:
