This is a great and cheap way to redesign old lamps, so I decided to try. I used string from a bulding supply store meant for bricklaying in neon pink. I didn´t find out an easy way of using the string. It is difficult to wrap it around but with som patience it turned out nicely I think.

I put transparent glue on the knot I tied in the beginning and at the end:

Below you can see the white version of the lamp:

In the dark the whole room now glows with an amazing pink colour:
