I bought this frame from "Out of the Closet"- a non profit thrit store that raises money for people affected with HIV and AIDS- I think I paid $6 for it.  It was 'Boring Beige' when found, with some brown beaded trim at the top and bottom.....a real sleeper.

This was custom made from a four-sided found lamp that would look great on a console or even on the floor beside a rattan sitting room.  It's covered in the same flamingo fabric I used on the interior of my vintage 1959 SantaFe camp trailer, then added a clean black trim to the vertical lines and across the bottom.  The black feathers are sewn to the top of the frame and add to the fun!  This lamp is GORGEOUS when lit with all of its rich colors. Line switch.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Box O Flamingos
