Some time ago, I bought this lamp on the flea market. I liked the base of the lamp but not the lampshade

So I peeled sway the green fabric and covered it with a spiderweb mesh, bias tape and beaded lace

light on

Later (after I took the fotos) I made this Spider from beads. At this moment the Spider sits on a web in the middle of the lamp Smiley
the spider


and the original lamp

Beautiful.  I truly covet that lamp.  You have turned a dull andn boring lampshade into something stunning.

Nice job!  Your shade goes very nicely with the base.
