Bathroom Light Fixture Makeover
My master bath is CURRENTLY in desperate need of an update OVERALL, but I decided to START with the light fixture.. This all came about when I joined a room makeover challenge with some of our blogger friends. The challenge? Pick a room in your house and give it a makeover spending NO MORE THAN $100!!!!
This is the BEFORE photo. I know, I know. Try to focus on the fixture. Baby steps my friends. I knew that I wanted to take the bulb covers off. I was hoping to replace them with clear ones, which would've been a good idea, had they not been $6 a piece.
I could not spend a third of my budget on just the light fixture, so I headed to the thrift store. I found these lamp shades for .75 each. NOW we're talkin'. I could feel the metal frame inside, and a lightbulb went off in my head! Excuse the pun.
Ladies and gentlemen. Beauty is indeed found within.
After a little cleaning, painting, and finagling this light fixture has a fun industrial farmhouse look. If you like the vintage bulbs you can find them at this affiliate link. They are like icing on the cake

Very nice looking and clever.
it wouldn’t be for me since I have an aversion to bare bulb lighting - too harsh on my eyes.
Nevertheless, I totally appreciate your design and applaud your creativeness. 👏🏻
Do you have any suggestions on how to transform one of those “Hollywood style” ball light bathroom fixtures?
How did you get the shade frames to attach to the light fixture?
