Upcycled Doily Lamp

Totally digging this imaginative re-use of doilies by Shannon South. Time to raid grandmas house and make a sweet lamp!

  1. Love the gobo effect... reminds me of the leaf umbrella I made in college and hung and lit with similar effect.

    Would like to see an "edgier" variant with the doilies dyed black or tea-stained. I think it would make the lamp more visually interesting when it's not lit (unless it's in a space that is relatively monochromatic and dark hued).

  2. These are very smart, I love how the light reflects in the top picture.
