    Go to Lowes or Home Depot, they have lots of glass globes. All you have to do is loosen the 3 screws around the base to remove the old ones. Habitat for Humanity has them too, way cheaper.

    Change out the globes

    I have seen in thrift stores the globes for this type of lamp. Or small lampshades. Also paint the fixture flat black to update the look too. Also maybe the new Edison bulbs with no shade at all!

    The thrift stores are a good source for new glass shades. I have purchased white ones and used watered down acrylic craft paint to give it a golden glow like a mica lampshade look. Cheap and updated. You can usually buy them for $1-3 each.

    Try thrift shops. Also hardware stores and Lowes carry ones that may fit as replacements into the fixture. I replaced the one in my bathroom this way, when I broke one.

    You can use the clip on shades & paint them with craft paint what ever color you want. Good luck.
