Great looking lamp re-vamp, and the tutorial is fantastic too! I sense that this is another thing that will soon be added to my list of summer projects.

Fab design, and great instructions. I must be slow cos there's one bit I just don't understand do you glue the 3 pieces of plasticore together? Also i'm not sure we have plasticore here in the UK, does any one know what could be used as an alternative? Ta x

thanks for the compliment(s)!

sorry to be so long with my reply, but I kind of lost track of this thread. In answer to your questions boof, you do not need to glue the plasticore sheets together, they snap pretty tightly onto the metal lampshade rings and do not need any additional re-inforcement. as for buying plasticore in the UK, I know that this product goes by many names, and I'm pretty sure that I once found a European website that had some for sale. unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me remember any of the other names... I'm sure it will come to me soon...

what are you gonna make today?

sorry that it took so long, but I can't even write a grocery list without throwing in a little bit of design...

I'm sure that I must have left something out, so let me know if you are having any troubles!

I love the way you layout your instructions!!!

this is quite possibly one of the most impressive "trash to treasure" crafts I've seen in awhile.  Kudos to you my friend.

Here is my lamp I created with your instructions, cutting those straight lines is harder than it looks!  I used an old target table lamp, pulled it apart (had to unwire & re-wire), left the pull chain on it.  Bought 2 rings for top and bottom at walmart (.67 cents each), since my old lamp didn't have them.  It's a neat lamp, but was kind of hard to make, drilling the holes was hard, since the cut lines were not perfect it sort of didn't match up.  It would be neat to see one in colored corregated plastic.
