So I found this lonely little lamp base in a second hand store...uses a nite light bulb.  It was metal, black and boring....and no shade.

I took it home and started digging- found the flamingo fabric from a previous project,made a template and divided it by 3 (cause its the "funk-shway weigh"...lol) covered  the little chandelier shade....and then 'just enough' of the eyelash and bead trim to wrap the bottom....So silly! I added a simple black trim to separate the panels and trim the top edge and counter the black from the lamp base.  Perfect for a book shelf or little desk area.  Line switch.
