One is a green transparent glass base; I threw all the other (nasty) parts away. I found some circular wooden pieces at Michaels that will be good for covering the hole in the top, but I need to find some vertical parts that will hold the light bulb assembly. Also, I need to figure out what to use as a base. I don't have power tools, and the wooden pieces from M's would require a router, or some quality time with chisel and hammer. I'm thinking the top of the base would need to be recessed so the flat, curved edge bottom would look right sitting on the base, and I need a channel on the bottom for the cord. So, I would like to find a better option for the base. Ideas, anyone?
Also, I want to recover a lampshade. It's a circular,white fabric shade; the bottom is much larger than the top. I want to cover it in a paisley-type asian-themed fabric that matches the base perfectly. It's a cotton polyester fabric; is this good for covering shades? Will it start afire? I used a 3 way bulb assembly. How do I attach the fabric to the shade? Hot glue?
As for the trim: would beaded trim look appropriate on an asian-theme lamp? Do you think it would look stupid for bead trim on the bottom and
the top? Or maybe use bias tape instead of bead trim? here
is the green lamp base and here
is the white lampshade.
