How to soften these glass shades?


I recently bought these clear glass shades for a fixture over ,a dining room table. The original ones were alabaster but it was so dark in the room. I like these but they are very stark looking. Any suggestions to soften them. Paint, fabric but still allow most of the brightness. .. not sure if I can have it both ways ...Any ideas would be appreciated.
