Ikea Hacker is a great inspiration of mine and recently I've been playing with turning a RIMFROST chandelier lamp shade into a table top lamp (instead of a ceiling lamp, for those renters out there). So, here it is on Ikea Hacker.

Step 1: Destroy Cheap Lampshade
Basically, remove the paper from the paper lamp shade. We're just interested in the structural part of the shade.
Step 2: Combine Shades
Remove the RIMFROST from its packaging and simply place on top of the wire-structure from the previous step.
Step 3: Secure Shades
Just wire the two lamp shades together until you feel they're secure. You might need to screw an extra circular black piece that comes with the lamp. It helps keep things from wobbling.
Step 4: Done!
Stick an Ikea-approved light bulb in there, and turn it on!!
