#1- Great idea! #2-Hmm. Someone did a REALLY nice job on these. For me, the screw top needs to be hidden, My ocd says NO NO! Could do beaded trim, embroidered ribbon, embossed metal strip, strand of pearls wrapped round & round, etc. Beautiful!
"Good Night" Night Light. — This would be perfect hanging under a loft by your futon if you want a little light while you're relaxing at night. I'd probably scale it down and use a lighter painters canvas + large-bulb string lights so you can hang it on a wall hook without worrying about it being too heavy. (Just don't leave it on overnight! Might get too hot with the string lights.)
