Read on for the tutorial, and if you're battling with a different type of builder-grade light that you don't love, here are some more light fixture updates for you to browse and get inspired (click on the picture to see the tutorial): I was longing to replace the lights in my hallway and stairwell, when I noticed that the structure of those lights looked just like the Mia Flushmount from Pottery Barn.Cost: Since I already had the lights, I only spent and had enough material for 2 lights Time Needed: This went pretty fast, but it took about 2-3 days for one light. I also had to take several breaks to get all the strands looped through the drilled holes (it makes your fingers get sore pretty fast). Divide that number by the number of crystal strands you want to attach (I used 20). You can cut your string to 1.25″ and use it to mark along the circle with a Sharpie where the holes will go.Taking another piece of copper tape cut to the same length (which is the circumference of the equator plus a few inches), begin taping it to the outside of the globe.
Step 1: Make sure to turn off the electrical breaker going to your light. Step 4: Use a hammer and finishing nail to hammer two rows of holes around the base circle.
You need two rows to loop the metal part of the crystal strands through.
Today, however, I am focusing on some of Joanna Gaines’ favorite light fixtures.
She loves to use unique lighting in her designs on Fixer Upper that aren’t always easy to find.
It helps to put it on a hard surface, like cement, when you nail the holes in.
Step 5: Next you need to put holes in the smaller circle on the light.Step 6: Once you hammer all your holes, you'll want to spray paint the fixture.There’s something magical about globes, don’t you think?Whether you're looking for a classic 1920s wall sconce or a modern pendant, our lighting provides the perfect finishing touch for every space.Have you had it with those ugly Hollywood light fixtures?Sometimes you can luck out and find some nice light fixtures on Craig’s List or e Bay for less. I think you’ll agree, it is neither difficult nor challenging to swap out a light fixture.
