Turning the concept in my head into an actual lamp was actually not that difficult, if you don’t include the part where I accidentally managed to smear glue on one of the panels and had to completely redo it. I am thinking about making a similar lamp for a child’s room, but there are a few steps in the process that I’m going to tweak.
Overall, I’m very happy with the way the lamp turned out. It looks pretty much like I envisioned it, although I think it has a distinctly “homemade” look to it.
It’s now officially freak out mode which always happens around Thanksgiving. There are 3 more gifts to finish, and one actually isn’t going to be completed — it’s one of those situations where the recipient has to give the present right back to you so you can finish it. I like to blame the wedding for messing up my schedule, but it seems to happen every year regardless of what’s going on.
