Beautiful Storm





Materials: Storm lamp, Nylon thread, hot glue

Description:
The paper lamp shade of one of our Storm lamps was lacerated, so I decided to make something more appealing out of the storm lamp.

I bought a sheet of Japanese paper and a nylon thread. I tore the lamp apart and re-used the metal components for a real transformation into something beautiful, there is really nothing you need to buy to do it except Japanese paper.

First, I used the top and base metal rings and screwed the base back (base ring needs some hot glue for stability). Then I criss-crossed the nylon thread to give the lamp shade more stability also. Finally I wrapped the Japanese paper around and cut the access away with an inch overlap which I hot-glued.

I left the metal spring around the shaft intact for a nicer look. It even has the original energy saving light bulb.

What do you think?

    It looks like you inverted the top bracket which makes it more visible, is this intentional?
