Light Fixture Update for $20!
When we moved into our home, one of the items I wasn't a fan of was our dining room light. It just wasn't my style.
But I didn't want to take it down I just wanted to give it a makeover. So here's what I did.
I happened to find this really large shade at HomeGoods on Clearance and inspiration struck.
I hated the distressed brass on the fixture, it just looked dirty to me. I didn't want the hassle of taking it down and spray painting it so I painted it with Chalky Finish Paint in Relic.
I purchased small chain from Lowes and attached them to the light fixture and shade using small jewelry jump rings.
I love the way ended up. It's more my style, and also the lighting is less harsh when sitting at the table.
What do you think?
