so i have about a trillion old point shoes. i always wondered what to do with them until my mom gave me a bell-shaed lampshade.
i painted the shoes a slightly metalic champagne, then used a rag to apply an "antique gold" to them. i hotglued them to the shade, and voila!
i suggest energy saver bulbs. they won't get hot (fire hazard) and they'll minimize they old shoe stink!!
