My odd addiction to hgtv has finally bore some fruit. I had recently purchased a lamp to replace the way too bright torchier behind the couch. The design was nice, an arched floor lamp that ends in a rounded plastic shade..but the white light, even with a low watt bulb was too bright and the light too cold. I even tried the 60 watt pinkish hued ones to no avail. In a sudden brainstorm I basically decoupaged this parchmenty-oriental handmade tissue paper I have on hand for collage projects and the result was lovely. I just covered the external plastic, so hopefuly, it won't catch on fire. Now I have a nice warm glow and, except for the missing bottom, it almost resembles the moon. Lighting crisis averted.
