Our home was built around 1880. This fixture has never been replaced. It is a bit charming, but a bit stark when you turn the light on. Since I was making over my girls' bedroom, I thought about replacing the fixture completely, but then I had a brilliant idea!
I had found this large linen looking drum style lamp shade at Walmart and wondered if I could wire it to the little nub in the center of this light fixture...which may be hard to see!
And Guess What! It fit around the bulbs perfectly and attached with just a bit of floral wire! A $15 Vintage Light Fixture Makeover!
Now it looks like I installed a Pendant Style Fixture...So Classy!
I will be posting more on this bedroom makeover soon! But at least you get the sneak peak!
