Ideas for Covering Old Bare-Bulb Fixtures?

Good Questions

Q: I am renting a charming 1928 bungalow that I love. However, two of the rooms have horrible bare bulb lighting. I don't want to replace the fixture entirely, as the wiring in the house is old and I'd rather not mess with it. Any suggestions for how to cover it?
