The other day I found this big white metal bowl at HomeGoods for $15 and immediately thought about a ceiling fixture.
One of my kitties disagreed because he was convinced it’s a cat bed, haha, but I had different plans!
I hate, HATE most ceiling fixtures, especially the standard builder ones.
|This is my hated UGLY light fixture!|
The only fixtures I ever like are “”mucho dineros” and if you ever sell your home, they usually stay behind. Not good!
I found these light fixtures on Houzz and if you could breed them and they had babies, the outcome might look somewhat like my NEW flush mount ceiling fixture.
While this isn’t a revolutionary idea, I still think it’s pretty cool.
I could have spray painted the circles in a different color but I like the white metal and picked some light grey tissue paper that I already had and mod-podged the paper to the inside of the bowl to give it that transparent look.
It took me several attempts to figure out how to hang the somewhat heavier thing. But it’s up and hanging and it’s “purrty”. If you are wondering, I used two small wood blocks that I screwed into the ceiling and then I screwed the shade in place from both sides. Works like a charm. Should I draw up one of those childish pictures to show you what I mean???? Well let me know!
This is what my upstairs hallway looks like now and I’m really happy with it!
What do you think?

The lamp shades and rug were also purchased at HomeGoods.
