A couple of weeks ago, Kristina wrote in with her question about what to do with her ugly pendant lamp belonging to her rented apartment. With lots of great suggestions and thoughts, she decided to cover it with a new shade from CB2. She writes:

Here goes a picture of what we did, and how we did it. We got this shade from CB2, which apparently they don't technically sell separately, but they hooked us up nonetheless, and thank goodness.


And perhaps our way of attaching it to the pendant lamp isn't the smartest or prettiest, but it works for now (as long as we don't leave the light on for very long):

As for the quick-fix packing tape solution, we're thinking maybe you should try extra long and tough twisty-ties or just a general type of thin wiring to attach at each section. Home Depot could surely help with a huge variety. Anyone else have suggestions?

Let's not forget the Before photo of the un-loved pendant lamp:

Thanks for sending, Kristina. Your solution looks great! And we really love the oval table...what can you tell us about it?
