This is more of a work in progress, but I wanted to post and share with the other Craftsters, since it was inspired by this challenge. I am so amazed by some of the entries so far, so just know that my vote will be going elsewhere!
However, I was at a yard sale a few weeks ago, and scored these two awesome games for a QUARTER each. Yes!
I absolutely loved the vintage bingo game, especially the awesome box top, which I plan to use as wall art. The Mr. T card game is too precious to cut up or glue at this point, so it's going to stay a game.
I thought the bingo cards had such a cool look that I wanted to incorporate into my living space in an unconventional way. I went shopping for a lamp and shade at a local antique shop. Stripped the shade and dusted off the old lamp. The bingo cards are simply taped on here in rows until I get the final configuration. (Wanting to see what they'll look like side-by-side instead of overlapped.) But I'm super happy with the red and blue rows, so that element is definitely staying.
Thoughts? Anyone know how I could easily adjust the inner wire on the lampshade so that the top and bottom rings are the same circumference? (As is, the bottom is wider, meaning I have to overlap the cards.) Wire cutters, or bend the wire in on the bottom ring? It's pretty thick.
