MELODI upgrade

Materials: MELODI + some wood

I gave my MELODI lamps a little upgrade.

I took a bunch of green colored wooden sticks and drilled some holes into the shade to hold the sticks.

It now has this nice nest like look.

Important is to not follow a pattern with the holes or sticks.

An alternative would have been to weave and bend one long colored pipe through the shade.

    This reminds me of a game I played some years back called Kerplunk. Are you going to put marbles in the top?

    You live dangerously, dude ! First, your flower pots. If any wind blows, I am not sure it will not end on someone’s head. In France, it’s not allowed to put flower pots on the outside, only inside of the window bar. Secondly, you or your gests will finish by poking an eye.
    Do you have any other dangerous project cooking?

    It’s an interesting look but I’m pretty sure I’d end up getting an eye poked out!
