2  A new use for Wedding Umbrellas! WOW! pics in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by slone2601 on: January 18, 2006 09:46:13 AM
I got married last year and bought 30 of these white umbrellas from Oriental Trading Post (for like $3/piece) for the guests at the wedding. They looked lovely, but I got home with about 20 of them and no place to put them. So.... there was this big space in my bedroom above my closet and below the ceiling that needed covering and I was in the process of picking fabric to sew curtains when I got this idea!

I hope you like it! I know it's really simple, but I am really liking the look. AND they hide all the ugly luggage and files that I have up there. Wo hoo!

3  Globe Lamps... (update page 4!!!). PICS! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by slone2601 on: January 12, 2006 10:02:30 AM
Hello, I have been having the idea to make these lamps for ages, and I finally did it!
They are in my kitchen which has totally inadequate lighting. So I decided to hang them above my favorite red counter that used to be in a chemistry lab. One of the lamps needed 15' of cord and the other needed 25 feet. The shades are the two halves of a globe that I chopped up. I put switches on the wire, so they are bright and really easy to turn on and off. Total project cost was about $5... which paid for the cords, switches and plugs. I had the globe.

My problem is this... They hang a little lopsided, so I taped them with electrical tape (which I'm sure you can see), but I want another/better option. Any ideas? Also I would love any feedback.

and here's a picture where you can really see the problem with the electrical tape. Any suggestions?
