    Hi again, I have scrolled this site, but I must be missing something. Can you tell me how you attached the light and lampshade? Thanks

      I would get on a ladder and figure out a way to attach it using thin, covered wire, like the ones they use to twist-tie all those toy parts into the boxes. So irritating. A home improvement store should have something along those lines. Then again, I am a jury-rig fixer, LOL! I am going to do this in my guest/junk room.

    Hi, I have the same question as the previous post; how did you attach the drum to the fan? Thanks for sharing Fabiola

      attached them with some cording and tied them to the light fixture…mainly for cleaning reasons. Use the search feature on her blog and search for ceiling fan drum shade

    With Electrical cording. I tied them to the Metal piece where the blades were removed.

    I love this idea. Is there some where we can get instructions that explain how to attach the shade? I checked the links and didn't see anything. TY
