  3. Okay ,I have been a crafty since age 8 and not...over 50...I have to say this is one of the most fabulously amazing craft creations I have ever seen! I have ceiling fans in every room of my house, but am thinking if I can find a floor lamp with a globe like this.. I am going to make this!!! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  11. Great idea! I wouldn't have thought of using the stickers for that. I have the same light in my kitchen and LOVE it. I bought it because it was likely the light that would have been in our house when the house was built (1912, as far as we can tell.) My base is red. Thanks for the inspiration!
