Assembling IKEA's Knappa Lamp Sans Instructions

That little piece of IKEA's Knappa Lamp looks friendly enough, right? On our recent move to Montreal, we arrived with the lamp - in 54 little pieces - thrown in a bag. Without assembly instructions. We remembered how tough it was assembling the Knappa the first time around and were not, years later, looking forward to reassembly...

However, we found out this time around that putting the Knappa together is much simpler without IKEA's notoriously confusing assembly instructions. That's the lamp below, fully assembled, sitting on the dining table. Whew!

Now, we just need to hang it. Design Boner actually provides terrific assembly instructions via step-by-step photos here.
