RATIONELL drawer mat Lampshade

Materials: Rationell Variera drawer mat, cable stoppers, clothes rope, metal ring

I made a 2 mm hole on each corner of the PP mat and joined two corners with a metal ring (the ones on the simple edged side of the mat). I attached each end of a 120 cm clothes rope to the remaining corners using cables stoppers to secure it (the ones used in bicycle brakes).

With duct tape I joined the rope to form a “Y” between the two stoppers and the ring and hanged it on the ceiling lamp fixture.
