sexy samtid bedside lamp

another hack from adam who a little while back sent in the benjamin laptop stand. this time it's a samtid lamp shade pimp.

"i love the samtid as it, but it's very bright for a bedside lamp. i found a sheet of self adhesive walnut laminate from a woodworking store that was only $15. i trimmed the veneer down to the approximate size, peeled off the backing, and stuck the samtid shade down.
