Light fixture with broken glass shades

+6
Answered
There are 4 white glass shades that hang down over 4 bulbs. They're held in place by screws.
Two of them are broken and I don't know how to replace them. I don't want to replace the whole light fixture, if possible.

    You can buy replacement glass shades. I know because I did the same thing. One globe broke and I couldn't find the same one, so I replaced them all. You can match the hardware by taking it to the hardware store and showing them what you have and they can match that, as well.

    You will have to carefully unscrew them, then replace with a new glass shade. Careful not to get cut!

    Take one of the shades to a light store, not a home improvement store. They have tons of resources to help you. It took me 2 years to replace a piece on our chandelier until we found a small light store and Voila. they made it happen

    Take an unbroken shade to the hardware store and try to match them. If you've got a Restore store in the area, they might have your shades.

    I had the same problem. I went to my local Habitat For Humanity thrift store, and for $2 per shade my problem was solved. You might even find shades you like better than the originals.

    Purchase all New replacements- not expensive, compared to new fixtures.

    I think you should just replace them all. Home Depot or Menard's will have a selection of inexpensive choices.
