After the plaster dries enough so that the pipe does not budge, attach the harp to the socket. Place your lampshade atop the harp, and secure with a finial. The cord should run from the side of the socket, over the top edge of the pot, and to an outlet. (Editor’s tip: Stick adhesive felt pads, available at a home-improvement store, on the bottom of the pot so it won’t scratch your table.)
