FREE Bathroom Light fixture update

If someone told you that you could “shop your house” to make a few small updates would you know how to do it? Is there anything in your house that you hate but you don’t have the money to update right now? Β Lately I’ve been on “bathroom update” kick and decided I would start small, with a FREE bathroom light fixture update.

FREE bathroom light fixture update

I’m going to be honest, this isn’t a HUGE update, but this little DIY LIGHT FIXTURE UPDATE did make a little difference.

Best part of this update, it was FREE!

It all started this morning when I found some mini lamp shade covers under the kitchen cabinets that I never used. I pulled them out and had a random thought that I could possibly use them in place of those ugly glass covers on the bathroom light fixture. Here is the “before” ugly bathroom light fixture:

This was a very simple project, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet.

Here is the lamp shade I stumbled upon this morning.

In order for these lamp shades to fit over the light fixture I knew I had to remove the metal part in the top of the shade that is pictured below:

I used a simple pair of pliers to cut out the metal part in the top.

After I removed the old ugly glass covers, it was time to add the new lampshade covers. Β Since I couldn’t screw the lampshade into the light fixture like I could with the old glass covers, I “slid” themΒ over the screws so they were good and snug and wouldn’t move.

And just like that I had a free DIY LIGHT FIXTURE UPDATE.

What do you think?

This simple DIY light fixture update doesn’t update the entire room, but every little bit counts right!

Can you think of a way to “shop your house” to create a free home update?
