I wanted to finish the lamp the other night, but apparently I am daft when it comes to electrical stuff... I blew the breaker several time, nearly elecrcuted myself and freaked out the family... so I ended up calling it quits for the evening and began a search for new, not faulty, parts. For some reason it never occurred to me, Home Depot carries the stuff to make a lamp for only $10. I bought one, and briefly considered getting more to make some snazzy lamps out of some really cool old bottles I have... but that is a later project.
ANYWAY, the point of this post is that I FINISHED!!! Hooray for me! I think it looks pretty awesome and that I should get a cookie for said awesomeness. :)
Here are pictures of the finished product:
