"Coffee Doodle Do"- CoffeeTime LampJanuary 9th, 2010 in member junk
This was one of my first lamps with the cup and saucer theme...after I got past the point that it was OK to show the handles back and forth instead of all on one side.
Sometimes, being a little 'AR' is NOT a good thing. But once I had the break- thru, it was so freeing!!
The fabric on the shade is a polka-dotted chicken in a tossed pattern on a light blue background, then I added the simple black trim to divide the 3 panels, and added the beaded trim at the bottom just 'cause. I inverted the bottom cup as the base, drilled a hole in the side for the cord to come out, and then mixed up the colors of the cups and saucers for the body.
Luckily, these chickens don't cluck very loud and have all been house trained. (Oh, and chicks really dig the lamp.....uggh....sorry couldn't help that one!)
