Today everywhere I turned I seemed to be stumbling on the concept of light…. quotes in my Facebook feed, art pieces about light, camera tips about natural light, a t-shirt with the message shine on, etc. I usually play music off an iPod on the Bose but tonight I hit play to see what was in my kitchen cd player… drum roll please, Coldplay’s Christmas Lights blared….Obviously it has been sitting in the cd player for a few months!
This inspired me to tackle a big project – too big for typical Monday. I am pretty excited to be underway in giving my kitchen lighting a long overdue makeover. There are five lights that look like this…
I found some fabric for the makeover….
My first attempt at attaching the fabric to the shade involved Mod Podge but for the first time in a looooong time, the Mod Podge failed me. It just wasn’t working with this shape so I moved on to plan b – spray adhesive. I tucked the edges under on the top and bottom using Mod Podge and used the spray adhesive for the sides. I finished two of the five shades so I am off to a happy start!
