DIY. Suspended lamp made of tubes

Here is my first lamp! I needed more light for the place where my piano stand. So I decided to use cardboard tubes of plotter paper that accumulated from lots of printed architectural projects.) There are 8 tubes of A1 format (60 cm) in this form. I cut them into 30 pieces and glued layer by layer starting from the longest one. Now I can advice to paint tubes first, I mean before gluing. But I painted the whole form after that was not easy in joints. I decided to use 4 bulbs, so it needed to cut 5 holes between tubes to install wire. At last lamp was suspended on steel hawser by snap hook.
