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 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.
