Basketball Shade

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Mon, 05/15/2017 - 21:09

Rather than using stacked 1x2s for the base I used 2x2s there as well. I had the old basketball on hand and the bulb guard leftover from another project. 

I also was able to dismantle the IKEA lamp in order to thread the cord and reassemble without the need to cut the plug.
