Here comes the lamp

Good day everyone,

When Frau Maier, my neighboor, gave me this old lamp because “she had the feeling it was for me”, I immediately saw how to transform it.

The brass stand was damaged, so there was no other choice than coating (with black mat paint).

I suspect the lamp shade was made of a pig bladder parchment. Both the lampshade and braid were discoloured in places, there was no way to clean or refurbish it, other than painting but I had another idea.

I had some extra birds left from my previous creation, got some artificial plants over it so .. tadam… What do you think?

I wish I had better picture but, Frau Maier got her lamp back immediately after the transformation, she was very happy and put it at her window (which makes me very proud)
