I have seen lots of really sweet lamps that folks have made so I thought I would give it a try...

During a trip to the Goodwill I found this basket and was thinking this would make a nice bird perch, like several I have seen folks make here.
Then I thought why not make it a lamp too. So off to the Home Depot for a swag kit and bulb, 30 min later I have my first lamp!!!

A little more detail and a piece of bamboo to hide the chord.

Lit up, the camera doesn't like the dark and the red but you get the idea.

Feel free to post your Homemade lamps here too!!!
