DIY: retro-style-lamp

I'm sick. I felt funny yesterday and on Sunday but it hit me yesterday in the evening. So, to brighten up my day: Here is my retro-style-lamp

This is what it looks like:

You'll need this:

And this is how I did it:
I used a soap rack from IKEA which I got some time ago on one of my shopping trips. It just happened to fall into my big blue bag :) and I thought "Who knows what I'll use it for!?"
Turned out: I'd use it for my lamp.

Some of my badly drawn steps are already done in the picture above. Maybe that helps (On step 3 it is important to leave out one of the soap-rack-bars after each wire-swing you hang in! Also: My wire-swing-thingies had a different length (left-side/right-side) this helped later to thread in my wire, seen in step 4)

Unfortunately I did not make step-by-step photos. I didn't know myself what I was going to do and while I was doing it I was so absorbed I did not even think about photos (Well, I did. But I was too lazy to make any.)
So now you have to cope with some silly doodles, photos and your imagination. It really wasn't that hard!

Though I really like how it turned out.
