So Megan got annoyed with me for sticking extra bright CFLs into the electric sconces either side of the fireplace. I said I had a plan! Which you can see my first prototype of in the attached pictures. Basically I bought some embossed wedding vellum from Amazon, cut some notches into it to get it to wrap around into a cone, cut off the bottom and voila, instant uplighting lamp shades! What do you think? Are they too tall?
