Huge lamp - not for sale

I just couldn't do it. I refined the below lamp - and I love it so much I just can't put it put for sale! 

 Here I am trying to show you just how huge this thing is!!!

Now my cats are trying to show you just how large this thing is.....

Now Colby is still trying to show you how large it is, while Pepper is sniffing his butt. Okay - sorry, got off track, but it was funny  

 A little of this:

And some white spray paint and the base was ready:
(ignore the candle sticks - I will show you those later)

Then came time for the shade. Lets take a look at it again:

The shade is made out of cardboard - so no light is getting though this thing... just up and down.  Therefore I knew that I could put any fabric that I wanted, without worrying about losing light!

Now here is the finished product:

What do you think?

LOVE IT! Just read your comment on Our Humble ABowed and had to check it out. I LOVE yellow! Not enough people use it to decorate! The lamp looks perfect with your pillows!

oh my gosh! GORGEOUS! Where did you find such a beautifully shapeful and substantial lamp!!! I'm kind of a lamp horror/lover! LOL... seriously, lamps are one of my fave things to look at. :)

Love it! The size and shape are fabulous. I debated on whether I should spray paint mine a gloss white or color, or do the gold. I felt the entry needed a little warmth added. Yours turned out beautiful, thanks for sharing.
