DIY drum shade
Sherry and John started with a new oversized lamp shade. Instead of buying a lighting kit (available at hardware stores), they were able to just slip the shade onto the base of the old light fixture.
To create a diffuser - which is key to block out all that retina-burning awkwardness of the bare bulbs - they used some basic cream coloured fabric, cut to size and glued into place.
All in all a roughly 15 minute job that can totally transform the look of your room - and a great weekend DIY project!
