Hello, I have been having the idea to make these lamps for ages, and I finally did it!
They are in my kitchen which has totally inadequate lighting. So I decided to hang them above my favorite red counter that used to be in a chemistry lab. One of the lamps needed 15' of cord and the other needed 25 feet. The shades are the two halves of a globe that I chopped up. I put switches on the wire, so they are bright and really easy to turn on and off. Total project cost was about $5... which paid for the cords, switches and plugs. I had the globe.
My problem is this... They hang a little lopsided, so I taped them with electrical tape (which I'm sure you can see), but I want another/better option. Any ideas? Also I would love any feedback.
and here's a picture where you can really see the problem with the electrical tape. Any suggestions?
