    I did this for my daughter's dorm room light. She had to have the regular lamp in the room -- So we just cut the top bars and they fit right over the wide part of the fixture. I used a silk brocade in teal. I strung bead chains and hung crystals too it is beautiful all the other girls on her floor wanted one! Worth doing when you have a boring ceiling fixture,
