Actually, I believe I bent it first then painted it or else the paint would crack. I then drilled two holes in the top and slid it wires that hold up my light from the ceiling. I left the inside silver for more reflection. I made this last year but when I moved I never put it back until recently. I like how it blends in with the black stand. I was thinking about makings sides to it.

What do you guys think?
It looks boss! I love the curved lamp style. I think you're ok with leaving it as is, would make it easier to remove.
