Good Questions: Experience Covering Light Fixtures?

Dear AT,

I am covering an ugly, round, bare flourescent light fixture in my kitchen. I found the a paper shade in the perfect shade of yellow at Cost Plus. My plan is to cut in half and put in over the light.

Before I tackle this problem, I wondered if anyone done it before? I am not sure how I am going to attach it ... the one idea I have is to use the cord fasteners/organizers (the small plastic piece/nail combo I've used to neatly fasten long cords to the baseboards of my place to keep it neat and tidy looking). However, the ceiling appears to be plaster, and I am concered the tiny nails will just crumble the plaster.

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first. Email questions and pics with QUESTIONS in subject line to: chicago(at)apartmenttherapy(dot)com)

Any ideas or experiences to share?

Many thanks!

Laura
