When we bought our home I was trying to come up with temporary fixes to minor eye sores. I needed something that would last until I could figure out exactly what I wanted. This light fixture is a perfect example. Granted it was not terrible, but it was not adding to my space.
Like I said not awful, not great. So I made a drum shade, and covered the sucker up.
I had been keeping my eye out for a more permanent solution, and my patience paid off. I found this little beauty at a thrift store for less than $6.00.
It just needed a little lovin’. I started by taking it apart, and then used a fine grade steel wool to scuff up the surface just a little. After you sand it, make sure you wipe it down well.
I then used this awesome product… I have used this all over my house and love it!
After waiting the appropriate allotted time I reassembled the light and installed this little guy. I love it. Bonus : I have been trying to come up with an excuse to use one of these awesome vintage light bulbs, and I found it. Perfection.
Light Fixture $5.50
Spray Paint $0.00 (Leftover from previous projects)
Light Bulb $10.00 (Home Depot)
