how to make a lampstand

i decided to do the lamp base using wire used for making clothesline and thin wire for binding the two together. i first made a square base then i attached the receptacle for the bulb using two wires connected to two opposite corners. they're thick so they are able to support the bulb and the receptacle. 

this is more difficult than the actual lamp! it took me more than an hour just to do this simple base. my fingers ache from twisting and bending the thick wire. and it's still not perfect but it will do! at least it's standing :)

the color of the lamp is more yellow now. maybe because the bulb is slightly elevated than before.
