Second pic is my bamboo lampshade made from old bamboo steamers. I wedged in polypropylene between the steamers and gives off a lovely low light.
I love lampshades. The house I used to live in last year had beautiful white walls and drop pendant lighting in each room. I was able to go to town making lovely paper and timber lampshades in each room. When I moved last year I sadly moved into a house with downlighting. What are people thinking, they are such bloody eyesores.
