Stunning DIY Ceiling Fixture

Downcycling

We've seen so many inspiring ceiling light makeovers lately that I knew I had to try my hand at a DIY version of my own. My daughter's room desperately needed an updated fixture, so it was a perfect time to see what I could come up with. Fortunately, I had an antique 1860s Baccarat crystal and d'ore bronze punch bowl that I'd picked up at an auction for a steal (only $3400!) just sitting in a cabinet gathering dust.

With just a little glass frosting spray and the construction of a makeshift foundry to melt down the brass and recast it with modern, clean lines, I ended up with a fixture that I think is very special and unique. And for only $3404.95!
