I started out with this lamp from IKEA:



Then, with some Mod Podge and a bunch of awesome postage stamps of nude art, I made this:

The lamp:

Side 1 (my favorite side):

Side 2:

Side 3:

Side 4:


The worst part was removing the bamboo sticks from the inside of the lamp so that there wouldn't be shadows on the stamps (I left it on the top part).  I think I seperated a little bit of my thumb from the nail because I was ever so carefully sliding my thumb inbetween the bamboo and the rice paper.

Anyway, really simple project but I love love love the way it turned out.

So cool! I love it!

Where did you get the stamps?   Huh  Or were they just lying around?

That's so cute!  I have a whole bunch of old Pope/Vatican City stamps from a semester studying in Rome...I'm going to see what I can do!

Oh, that is really nice. I love pretty stamps and that is the coolest way I've seen to display them.
