Metal Lamp Shades and the Uberbrassariffication


I've been on the hunt for some black metal lamp shades like the above. I have some lamps that I think would look great with them. While searching I found some others I was loving.

These pendants...


I actually have a vintage brass drum shade.  It got me thinking about it again and all the crap I want to do with it...
I'd actually like to hang it over my kitchen table.
(i wish I could change light fixtures like underwear)

Chic child head gear for my rambunctious little one...

But then I remembered an old brass lamp base I had, and decided to marry the two together into
UBER-BRASS naughtiness!
And I really like!
Its almost kind of like a lamp sculpture.

What do you think?
Diggity or does is look like br-ass.
