How can I build an extra large drum light shade? Answered
I would like to make a big drum light shade (approx measurements are 40" wide by 12" tall). I've got a basic hanging light fixture (just a triple bulb fixture with no shade), and I would like to fashion a frame (this is the hard part) around which to wrap a thin fabric.
Here is the style I'm going for, but not nearly big enough: http://remodelista.com/img/sub/uimg/Julies%20Images/west%20elm%20parchment%20drum%20light.jpg
Any guidance you might have on where to get loops (or make loops) with approximately a 40" diameter, or how to get that frame done would be much appreciated!
