That is stunning. I would plunk down some serious money for that lamp. 

Some of my best pieces of furniture and decor are dumpster finds and I am always excited when someone else takes a piece of nastty disgusting trash and turns it into something that could be photographed for a magazine. Smiley

Wow... I honestly never expected so many replies! Thanks for the lovely comments, everyone. Grin

Super freakin cool! love the contrast in blacks. It gives it a very expensive, well planed out look. It's hard to pop in monochromatic (especially black!) But you did a great job!

The frame sat in my craft room for several months while I a)formulated a plan of attack, and b)searched for the perfect fabric. I immediately knew that I wanted to use a murky green taffeta for the lamp body, but finding anything like that in fabric stores proved to be impossible. Thank goodness for op shops (goodwill)- we have about nine of them in my local shopping precinct.

Sooo awesome!!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.
