Dining Room Light Fixture Makeover {Stripping Down}

Dining Room Light Makeover by Creatively Living

What do you do when you are on a tight budget but the light fixture (as-is) is just not cutting it? You start stripping it down…

I’ve been looking for a good “before” picture of this light fixture; and I think this [picture above] is the best I’ve got (taken mid way through the Dining Room Makeover).

It’s not a bad light fixture, it’s in good shape. But it’s NOT my style!

I’m frugal!

I’m not an electrician.

But I can take things apart.

So, I took off everything that I could. The alabaster bowl, the extra swirls and ring.

I really didn’t want to have to buy and new fixture and install it!

So, I did would I could to make this work. [And got some cute Edison Light Bulbs.]

Although this may not be my first choice at a store, it’s it’s a vast improvement from where it was and fits in with my rustic, farmhouse feel much better.

Cheers to a completed dining room! You can view the complete Dining Room Makeover here.

  1. Great idea! I have a dining room light fixture that I’m not fond of, but wow – light fixtures can be sooo spendy. Thanks for getting my creative juices following. 🙂 Happy new year!

  2. That’s really cute, it looks like it was made that way, I love it! I have a fan with lights on it in my dining room that I’m planning to strip down and paint black.
