DIY Friday: Oversized Light Fixture

September 9, 2011 | 11:45 AM | Home & Design | By Alanna Watson

Change is not only an inevitability, but also a necessity when it comes to home furnishing. Budget may not permit a complete decor makeover every year, but little DIY projects like this oversized light fixture from Young House Love can really make all the difference when you just need something to give. Not to mention it only takes $32 and an hour of your time.

After taking an existing light fixture and an oversized lampshade, these crafty bloggers were able to transform their entire office with very little effort. By cutting a neutral, slightly opaque piece of fabric and fastening it to the bottom of the lampshade before attaching it to the fixture, the lampshade element of the piece vanishes and a softer light glows while giving a very chic vibe to an everyday room. Read all the directions here and flip through the before and after photos after the jump.
