On HGTV's website there is a great tutorial on covering a lamp shade with fabric. I think this may be a good option for me if I can't find what I'm looking for.
Of course I can't stop looking, even after I find what I need. (I think there's a name for that.)
I think this coffee cup lamp is just as sweet as can be.
OMG - this photo lampshade is so neat!
Although there's no tutorial for making this lamp, I love the idea. It would be so cute in a boy's room. Snag an old toy like this at a garage sale and spray paint it all one color. It could be rusty or paint peeling and left as is too. Buy a cord with a socket like the one above and you're set to go. (To be on the safe side a lamp like this would be for a child that is old enough to understand that a lamp like this can't be played with.)
These diy outdoor lights are simple and inexpensive. I could see a whole bunch of these used for an outside party - ambient and festive!

How cool is this lamp? What a great use for old rulers that have a nice patina or good graphics on them!
