Just thought I'd show off my Swag Lamp I made from tutorials I found on the forums and a little of my own ingenuity. I used bamboo and dried palm leaves from my garden. I have it hooked up in my Hut by remote control.

Sweet swag man. I gotta try my hand at this! What kind of fabric did you use for your tapa design?

Thank you so much for the nice comments and warm welcome. I love projects like this, it was a heap of fun. The fabric I ordered was from amazon, I think I just typed in Island prints or Island fabrics. There is a thread if you search for it that shows using modge podge on it after it's attached to the frame.
A tip to anybody else making a lamp...go to Lowes and in the fan/lighting dept they have a swag lamp kit that comes with 12ft cord and chain for $12. I bought the socket and cord I used from Ikea which was only $5 but then I bought the decorative chain separate and the chain was almost $16 by itself...I didn't learn about the Lowes kit until afterwards.

I do other art as well, I own a screen printing business here in Portland and I just did a 6 color tiki screen print, that I'll be posting soon. I'll be selling shirts of it in my Etsy shop at some point soon too.

Bloody great lamp! Those windmill fan palm leaves worked out well as a "thatched roof". That tapa style fabric is made by Alen's Fabrics, you can find it on their website www.islandshawaiianfabric.com - on sale for $6 a yard right now They have several cool prints including the same pattern in blue.
