How was your Christmas? Ours was really great. My back is feeling better and even though I still have to take it slow, I'm starting to get back to some projects I postponed.
One of the projects was to update 3 of my ceiling fans. One of them has a mason jar on it and I was going to remove the jar and then changed my mind. The other two had the basic round globe light cover. So boring.
One day at Goodwill, I found these metal cylinders for $1.99. each. I think they're to hold candle pillars. There were two of the shorter ones and one long. I bought all three.
The fans had the energy efficient curly looking bulbs and I wanted something more decorative to go with the see through cages. I left the bulb inside the mason jar, but I bought two garage door bulbs, which were less expensive than the trendy vintage looking bulbs and brighter too. I also bought a pack of miniature zip ties from the dollar store.
It was super easy to attach the cages and only took 2 zip ties per ceiling fan.
I really like how they turned out and it's amazing what a difference updated lighting can do for a room! Sorry about the picture quality, I took these on an overcast day and just couldn't get it right.
I don't know if you can tell very much, but they make a really interesting and beautiful patterns on the wall when turned on. I'll try to take better pictures of them in future posts, so you can see better!
