Changing a light fixture is an easy fix, that can make a huge difference in the way a room looks. We have put in new ceiling fans in all bedrooms and the living room, and we just finally got our dining room and entry way lights changed (pictures of those will come with the big kitchen reveal).
So our hall light is pretty hideous...or at least I think so...you can judge for yourself:
I can't stand the shiny yellow gold (also why we changed our dining and entry way light fixtures). I much prefer the oil-bronzed finish or a pewter finish.
However I didn't want to buy a new light just to hang in the hallway. So I took one of the lights we took down from the dining/entry way and modified it.
After some oil-bronze spray paint:
And some glass frosting (which is so much fun I want to find something else to do this too!)
Ta-da....new hall light...which still needs to be hung :)
