During those summer months, I long to be outdoors. At the beach, by the pool, in the backyard, at the park. You name it! But I'm always craving SHADE! Keep cool with one of these chic umbrellas that are sure to turn heads this summer, and maybe make you want to use them year-round.
Scraphaker's roundup of umbrellas used as lampshades has made me pea-green with envy...because I wish I had thought of it first. Be damned bad luck, you'll want to
I came across Heather Wells and her Cocktail Umbrella Lamps about a year ago and fell immediately in love. So you can imagine how excited when I saw Heather actually showing us how we can make our very own!
What you need:
- pre-made cylinder lamp with modified base and self-adhesive shade
- cocktail umbrellas with tips that have been dipped in glow in the dark paint
- clear glue
- sharp little scissors
- spray lacquer
- heat retardant spray
