I think this is totally awesome. I work at a marina, and this is a better lamp than the different ones we sell in the store! Awesome job!
wow, thanks!!

Here is what my final product looks like -



And here is what I originally picked up at Goodwill -


 
First I ripped the dingy silk covering off the shade...


then put nautical rope on to the lamp base.  (no in-process photo for that, as I needed six hands to do it.   I didn't have six hands, so i used my feet and knees. Wink )

Then I measured and painted these six panels.

The whale may be my fave, but the anchor is always a real love of mine.



 I chose M63 to put on the bouy 'cause M is my initial and 63 is my year.

 The flag also represents the letter M.


and glued 'em all on, a rather Hellish process...

then added rope to the panel divisions.

In general, I think my $1.29 purchase went quite a long way... Cheesy  Ahoy!!
