I was looking for an inexpensive way to update a light fixture in our stairwell without the hassle of changing out all the electrical stuff. The vault is REALLY high and a big pain to change. The previous lights were OK, but I was ready to freshen them up. I also wanted something a little bigger.
Here's the before:
See how dinky it looks?
And here it is now:
All I did was remove the glass dome and replace it with a large, oval cloth shade.
And the best part?........It only cost 15 bucks!
