Dumpster diving lamp shades

Tip #2: I found two old lamp shades in a dumpster outside my building. They were covered in a woven nylon material and had two different colored textured linings – black and tan - which I peeled off and used. The black material makes for great seat covers and the tan is good for convertible tops, soft truck tonneau covers and rolled up canvas.

Ken: Dumpster diving can turn up all sorts of cool modeling material. You just have to keep your eyes open. Mark is a big contributor to Tips and Tech and we always look forward to his ideas.
