When I first created this idea. it sat on a table like a lamp. But as you can see I don’t have a place to sit a lamp. Unless I set it on the top of the wall of cabinets. But then I would be able to reach my junk.

As I filled the wall of cabinets, I noticed the revolving bookcase had some open spots. Hum! I can hang a lampshade there and there!

Hang the lampshade

Lampshade hanging in a bookcase

Decide the best location to hang the shade. Make sure to allow room for the lampshade to turn when loaded with craft supplies.

Mark the location and then drill a hole through the shelf

Add the bolt down through the hole

Place the bolt through the top hole in the lampshade.

Screw on the locking nut

Now your lampshade spins.

The clips

These small clips are key to making this work. I would love to use clothespins but they are too bulky. I did try those adorable small clothespins but things tend to fall off when turning.

My number one goal for designing this space was to have things in plain sight. This answers the goal.
