I found stacks and stacks of eight tracks in my grandmother's attic a few months ago. For some reason i couldn't bare to part with them. Now i know it was destiny! Thanks!
Have fun with it!  Mind the drilling, though.  I'm surprised I didn't hurt myself doing it without clamps.

This is such a cool project. Very inspiring. I also love the lampshade with the clear bobble on top- it's god such a great design on the top. Where did you get the lampshade?

The lampshade came from either Lowe's or WalMart... don't remember which... and then I added braid that I'm pretty sure came from JoAnn's.  Without the braid it just wouldn't have been the *perfect* shade for that lamp.

I like the clear ball at the top, too, especially the way you can see the room upside down in it.  Kinda goes with the lamp, no?
