Make beautiful lampshades you'll love forever
Imagine walking into your home at dusk...Rather than switching on the harsh downlights, you reach for the in-line switch on your table lamp, lighting your living room with warm lamplight that highlights a beautiful fabric. Next you wander over behind the couch and reach under a lampshade on your standard lamp (the one you found 15 years ago in a thrift store), it has a different but complementary fabric - it was a little more expensive, but worth every cent.
The paintings on the wall are aglow. The scene is set. Switch on some great music, pour yourself a refreshing drink, sink into your favourite armchair and bask in the glow of another day well spent.
That's the feeling I get each evening when its time to turn on the lights. The pleasure I feel from using something I made, day in, day out is more than substantial...it really pleases me!
