Oh, the ceiling light we love to hate, the flush mount fixture that only a contractor could love. The good news is that these builders' delights are very easy to makeover because when you unscrew the center, um, nipple, the glass slides right off, and you're left with a threaded rod you can attach almost anything to. Here's a truly inspiring makeover we love. You'll never guess what it's made of!
Carolyn Clegg has turned a sharp DIY eye to the fixtures in her home, and with a small budget and a ton of creativity, she's giving them new looks. Did you guess what this one is? It's a plastic salad bowl! She added some circular stickers as stencils, painted the inside, removed the stickers, and created a fresh fixture for her daughter's room for just a few bucks.
