I found this little golf bag lamp in two tone brown and beige...it had a cheap, rust spotted brass base that didn't look very good- so I covered it with astro turf. and then added three clusters of golf tees in the grass. 

I covered the repurposed drum shade with a tossed pattern in a golf them and then edged it with a rope colored trim.   The bag has zippers for the pockets....and I used a golf ball with a hole drilled in it as the finnial top (sorry I didn't shoot that!).

Perfect for Fathers Day, or a game room/ office.  Before this sold I actually dragged it with me to a Golf Course in Lox Feliz, CA to the little cafe on the green and plunked it on the table as a centerpiece....hoping to get a reaction, bue better- a buyer!  I did sell it (just not there).  This is my fourth GolfBag lamp.....and they're all gone... so I'm on the lookout for another.

If it ain't broken, don't fix it.  If it is, fix it, add something to it, call it your own and sell it!!
