the lamp used to be covered with dented rice paper, then I re-upholstered it with silk and used a cherry blossom stencil for a quick design, and now I don't have to buy a new lamp!

Thankyou! I made it this morning after my usual cup of coffee, I was shocked at how nice it looked when I turned it on!

Well actually its not rice paper, its very thin almost silk fabric that I used(like the sort of fabric you would buy to make silkscreen frames) and it was staple gunned over the lamp base, I hope that answers your question Huh
