I love these lamps from Ballard Designs. I'm cheap and not about to pay $79 (plus shipping) for a lamp. So I spray painted a lamp I had in the closet and glued some sisal rope to a plain white shade. It's not hand braided natural sea grass like the Ballard lamp, just a $1.50 roll of sisal twine, but I'm happy none the less. And it didn't cost me $79 dollars, plus shipping to be happy.
