How do I make a ceiling light less bright?


I bought a ceiling light....the style is a barn is attached to the is TOO bright. The inside is white. I don't wanna send it back, so how do I take the brightness and glare away? It has a 60 watt bulb in it. What kind of cover could I add? I was thinkin' of using my metal strainer. It is old and has star holes all around it. Any suggestions sure would be appreciated.
