Our new apartment had no lighting in the upstairs bedrooms. During the day, this is not a big deal, since we have large windows that bring in a lot of day light, but at night we need something. Eventually I have plans to either buy some large lamps, or create a better lamp. But I really wanted to make something sooner, rather than later. I took an old standing lamp, tore it apart, and created something new! I love it, but I’ll probably add a different lamp shade fixture.
