I am an Interior Decorator and I ordered these for a client that didn't want to spend much money. They are carrying out the Peacock theme in their living room so I filled them with 3 colors of half marbles from ****** *****. Purchased some Peacock feathers and tied them with fishing line, to the metal post in the center of the lamp. By standing on my head I got them done but it would have been so much easier if you could fill them from the bottom. The decorating on the shades, electric glued the half marbles every 2 inches on the bottom of the shade then placed another Peacock feather on the seam of the shade. I could easily get $$$ per lamp. Just used my skills to get it arranged. THANKS OVERSTOCK FOR THE GREAT BARGAIN.
Perfect for my beach inspired bedroom. Filled them 1/3 full with shells. Look great! The only negative is that one of the lamps does not sit flat. Seems to be something in the bottom that's preventing it from sitting flat. Will probably try to pry off bottom eventually. Otherwise I love them!
Bought these to fill with shells and beachy stuff. Its definitely more difficult to fill properly. I started, and put some large shells in, but the problem is the stem that runs in the interior needs to remain perfectly straight so that you can put the bulb part back on the top. I had to dump it out and haven't tried again yet. I will get to it eventually, but the conclusion I have come to is put less in!! Otherwise, very attactive.
I ordered these for my 5 year old son's bedroom - I filled them with mini-superhero toys (3") which I found in bulk on another website. I wish the let us post our own photos! These are adorable - my son loves them, his friends love them - they think these lamps a very cool! Glad I spotted them on Overstock!
