Remember the lamp shades from IKEA? Well, here they are finished and installed on the bases. I got the lamps from a Target clearance rack earlier in the summer. When I went to install the shades, however, I realized that some conversion was required because the lamps needed harps and the IKEA shades were built differently. A quick search led to these instructions on how to convert the lamp to take the IKEA shades. My poor husband was conscripted into service. I told my daughter this morning that is is a good idea in life to either A) be an engineer or B) marry one.
Thanks Apartment Therapy for the instructions and thanks hubby for the blood, sweat, and tears!
