{how to: driftwood table lamp}

d
. . . wonderfully inspired by what can become of a few pieces of driftwood, bits of string & a little imagination: australian stylist tim neve created this beautiful driftwood table lamp from a standard wood lamp base {below}, sanding down the lacquer to an unvarnished surface, affixed pieces of driftwood and tied everything with string . . .

So lovely. It'd be perfect in a beachside cottage, or even just my bedroom. I love how out of the box this thinking is, and how ultimately simple it is to do.

Driftwood. So sensual and evocative in the bedroom. Perfect mood. Relaxed and sexy as rumpled hair.
