Oh by the way, here's the world's easiest way to pimp a plain Ikea lamp:
Buy a packet of pom pom trim for $2.50 at the local haberdashery store:
... and lazily stick to said lamp with a bit of double sided tape. Finished product resembles this:
Ok, the trim is a bit higgle piggle but no matter, I think I'm going to pull it off to glue it properly down anyway. The tape was just to sample the finished product to see whether I liked it. And I do!
Quick, what can I do next?
