My son gave me a vintage lamp that reminded me of Ballard's Tasseau Lamp. I also really liked their seagrass lamp shade so I decided to make my own. I purchased a shade that I believe
they refer to as a sloped or tampered drum. I already had a placemat made out of some type of rattan. After unraveling it, I hot glued it to my shade making sure that my rows stayed straight. After I finished the horizontal strips, I glued a vertical strip to cover the seams. I love how it turned out! For now, it's in the foyer but once my office is complete, it's new home will be on my desk! To see more, visit my blog at http://awalkinthecountryside.blogspot.com/20...

Wow, I love it. It looks so classy and professionally done. Great job!
First impressions are everything and hollow core bi-folding doors are not the feeling I was after for the first impression upon entering my home. Removing the closet doors and building a
custom bench complete with drawers, baskets, and hooks for a beautiful, comfortable and functional space was the perfect solution. Visit my blog for more details on this and many other home projects! http://wovenhome.blogspot.com/2012/07/entry-...
That's really beautiful. And you even did some "veining" in it. The color is just perfect.
How long did it take and how does it feel to walk on. The reason I ask is because I'm refinishing my basement into an apartment for rent and I'm thinking about doing just that. Would you recommend it for a rental apartment - just asking?
