Although I love small round bulbs... I did not love the vintage round globe-light fixture that was installed in our dining room when we bought the house.
|(This is not a true "before", since this fixture was originally a peachy color. Until we were ready to replace it, I painted the frame white to help it blend with the ceiling.)|
A quick trip to Home Depot, and a few dollars later... and we have a new look!
I think it achieves what I had originally intended, and am surprised it took me so long to make such a quick and simple change. I wouldn't say that this is our "forever" chandelier... but, for a budget makeover... I'm happy with it (for now)!
