Announcement   I make very unique lamps and shades. Everything I make is a part of my heart and soul and I'm a Virgo and as they say we are very detail oriented. I have to have perfection in my pieces and please understand, not a single item leaves this house without it. My lamps and shades are very strong and very easy to clean. They are well protected and come from a smoke free and pet free environment. I start with an unfinished wood lamp base which I sand, prime, handpaint and cover in a very shiny hard gloss. Then I get a self adhesive shade and after I pick out my fabric I'm ready to go. Please take a look and see what you think. I'd love to hear anything you have to say, good or bad. Have a wonderful day and please check out my shop!!! Also, I've never shipped out of the United States but will learn the process if you give me a chance, Thank You for taking the time to visit me.

About

GimmeLightandCrafts

Hello, One day I saw unfinished lamp bases and self adhesive lamp shades at a store and decided to make myself a lamp. I've had it for a few years and everyone always loved it. So I went to a fabric store with my daughter and while she was looking for fabric, I was looking for wilder fabric that I could cut without it leaving threads sticking out. I hit every store I could find for unfinished lamp bases and self adhesive shades. I didn't want plastic beading (it fades) so I decided to make my own with czech glass beads. I work on the unfinished bases with sandpaper and prime them before I hand paint them ( usually metallic or pearl paints) and then spray them with a very shiny gloss (triple thick). I absolutely love making them.

Hello, and welcome to my shop!! Hope you enjoy looking!!! My lamps are unique, no 2 are the same. I do all of the glass beading by hand (double threaded) except the eyelash trim and sequin trim. I love each and every one of my lamps so they are done with tender loving care. All of the lamp bases start out as unfinished wood. I sand, prime,hand paint and spray with a glossy finish. I match material and paint and beading as close as possible. I'm a Virgo, what can I say!!!! We are very detail oriented people. Supposedly!!!

Payment
I except PayPal and credit card payments and are due within 48 hours. I will also do a payment plan and you will receive your item when all payments are cleared. You may also cancel your order at any time before shipping.I will do anything to work with you.
Shipping
Please note that all overseas buyers are responsible for any and all duties and custom charges that may be incurred. I ship within 48 hours (excluding Sundays) and will use all postal services that I can, starting with the cheapest first. I offer free shipping on a lot of my items but only with regular USPS. If you need your item quickly then just email me and we can discuss which is best for you if you want to pay the shipping costs.. I wrap each item with layers of bubble wrap and use strong boxes so no damage should incur, but you never know what can happen so insured packages are the only way to go. I've never shipped overseas before but there's always a first time for everything and I am willing to do what it takes.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there's an issue with any of my crafts, I will be happy to fix it or replace it or give store credit. I take extreme care of my lamps but shades can bend easily, so please take special care if you decide to return (plus shipping costs). I want to make my customers happy and will work with you anyway I can but I won't be able to except damaged items. Thank you in advance for understanding.
Additional policies and FAQs
All lamp bases take about a month to make and dry properly. I can make a shade in a couple of days (without beads). So if you decide to make over your room I can send a sample of the fabric that is on the lampshade and swatch of paint color to match. I can also make larger shades with a universal pendant cord with on/off rocker switch. Or if there's something you're thinking about just email or convo me and I can send swatches of all material that would go with it and make your lamp. Thank you.
