The new shades

The clear glass shades with the etching and flute weren’t bad but they just looked wrong against the plaster wall. They also needed to be united with another lamp. I (finally) found some plainer ones in milk glass that fit and that was another reason while it took so long to find, the bases come in many sizes.

SO Top tip Place the lamp base on a notebook page and draw around it so that you create a template and when you find the one(s) you like you can place on top of your template to see if it will fit.
