Updating a light fixture in a bathroom

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.

It all started this morning when I found some mini lamp shade covers under the kitchen cabinets that I never used.

This 1980s light fixture was making this bathroom look very dated. Before you start the job, be sure to take these safety precautions: Switch off and tape off (or lock out) the breaker to any circuit being worked (turning off the wall switch is not enough as someone could inadvertently switch it back).

Last week, we shared our design plan for the half bathroom.

As a reminder, this is right off the kitchen and our only downstairs bathroom.

There may also be small screws on the sides of the light holding it to the mounting plate.

Once the light is separated from the base, check all wires for voltage.

Is there anything in your house that you hate but you don’t have the money to update right now?
