Here is my version of the clip-it-up. I just finished making it today. I still need to cut down the top, but I wanted to wait until I make sure it is the right size. I made the clips with 28mm paper clips and mini spring clothespins. The rod, blank canopy kit and locknuts were purchased from Lowes in the lamp department. I purchased two new lampshades for our bedroom and took the old lampshades apart to use for this project.
I really like having my items to see what I have. I didn't know I had so much until I started pulling things out. Still have more to put on.
