Fab DIY Lampshade - It's a Puzzle

I've just come back from Rome - don't worry there will be pictures... the trip was great - my son's idea - and the shopping was even better. :-)

Amongst other things I brought back a DIY lampshade, or rather two but I've only managed to assemble one so far as my head is a bit fuzzy and the instructions are in ITALIAN!!! Amongst all the lovely things I also brought back a horrible bug and I am not quite feeling myself... so I am very proud of myself that I managed to put it all together after all!

Anyway, here it is.

The whole lampshade first with the top unfinished so I can insert the cable/bulb.

A close-up of the lampshade.

The puzzle pieces (40 of them) that make the lampshade.


  1. Wow, that lampshade is such a beautiful design! Isn't Rome the best? Can't wait to see your photos!

  2. Well I'd probably be confused even if the instructions were in English!
    Love the look of the lampshade, nice buy.
    Hope you feel better soon.

  3. just given you a 'you make my day' award see my blog for details. (Blame that lot at Natural Attrill, they started it!)

  4. Hey, I just bought two of those in Venice! My mom and I spent an hour trying to figure out how to get the stupid thing together, but we did it. Our instructions came in English but were equally as useless.

  5. wowee! Swanky lampshade Sybille!

  6. Hey! I've just come back and I also bought one of these, I've been trying and trying to get it to go together for about an hour now. Can you please, please help me out! Haha!
