Yarn is Cheaper

Threw some money at the lampshade problem because, seriously, life is too damn short.

The drawback (because there always is one): Between the original lamps, hot-glue gun, extra hot-glue sticks, six rolls of sisal and new lampshades (not to mention the agita and fried nose hairs), I coulda bought the original lamps that I wanted. But Iím happy with this. It's sufficiently cozy coastal/nautical/Cape Cod/Nantucket for my needs.

Your lamp turned out very pretty, and, IMO, more balanced than the inspiration. I really like the cut glass base and the shade is just the right size for it while also having some texture itself. Very, very pretty.

Ain't that always the way? These look very nice though. Now let's hope you can use them to read peacefully without too much moth crunching going on.
