Yes....we're very punny over here at the Hand Me Down House (hopefully you caught our corny joke!).
This very orangey light was one of the first things people saw when they came into our house....and well, it's VERY orange:
This "beauty" was from Target (my FAV store!) -- and well, as you can see it didn't really go with our decor.
So we took off the shade (just screwed off). and pried apart the clasps that were holding each orangey plastic peice inside the frame.
I initially tried to pain the shade peices, but it made them too dark.
On to Plan B (does this happen a lot in your house? It definitely does in ours -- or a Plan C).
PLAN B? Vellum!
(I should note that we left our new light on for quite sometime with the velum in place to make sure we weren't going to oh, I don't know, burn our house down or anything. Luckily, my Mister is more logical than me -- I never think of these things, and it's honestly a wonder I don't cause more house-project-gone-wrong-accidents).
Once I found the right pattern of vellum, it was simple enough as trace, cut and place:
And VIOLA! Our finished product -- and for only a couple bucks!
