Photo Slide Lamp Shade

Here it is - the project I've been dying to try out for months (maybe even years?) now.  I give you the photo slide lamp shade:

I'm absolutely in love with it!  It's sitting on an awesome lamp stand that I scored at Goodwill for $10 a while back and illuminating my room from atop my IKEA night stand.  I first saw it done on the show "She's Crafty" and then found the tutorial here later on.  It was incredibly easy to make.  It probably took me about an hour - not too shabby.  :)  Here's another pic I just shot on my iPhone:

I can now cross this project off the "to-eventually-try-one-day" list!  Hope you like it!

I LOVE this!!! I would love to make one but where did you get your slides made?

Thanks for the comments!

In response to your question, Afton, I didn't have slides made. I bought these off of eBay. It was a set of European tourist slides. So the pictures are all of tourist attractions in Europe.

It would have been very neat to have my own slides made, though! I imagine that's pretty expensive.

WOW!! Must say this is really neat! I can see why you've had this on your "to do list" for a while... I am going to put this in my "some day" projects - lol

I stopped over from J&Ms Strut Your Stuff link party where I've linked up too, pop on over if you get a chance.

Hugs, Antonella :-)
