We've all seen our fair share of ugly ceiling light fixtures. We've also see our fair share of DIY ceiling light fixture cover ups. Here are six of our favorites, all of which can be adapted to various styles so they serve as much as how-to's as inspiration for our own creations. Enjoy!
Maegan used a hanging wire planter to make this delightful Eames-inspired cover up. Visit Love Maegan to see how to do it yourself.
Emily dispensed with the glass "boob light" shade and wired up some faceted crystal baubles to glam up her unsightly fixture. Click here for all the details.
Monica used a wire wreath to make a ribbon chandelier to cover her ceiling light. Check out the video above to see how she did it.
Using barrel shades to cover an unsightly ceiling light isn't new, but my way of attaching on TO the fixture is. I used earth magnets, which means no wiring which means a perfect flush mount to the ceiling. Visit this post to see how I did it.
And, yes, barrel shades can be using for semi-flush mount fixtures as well, as proven by Amy over at The Blissful Bee.
Our last entry comes from HGTV and the tutorial is a quick and dirty, no images, text only deal. But it sounds easy enough to do, and it's the perfect way to cover STRIP lighting fixtures. These two were made for $3.00! I'll give you a hint on how they were made: A barrel shade was cut in half lengthwise and attached to the fixtures. Clever, no?
