Your space looks pretty close to awesome...except for the butt ugly ceiling fixture that's a literally glaring reminder that you rent. Yup, you could swap it out for something new but why not save time and money and transform it into something cool and modern and fabulous? Plus, it's easy enough that even I can do it.

The wonderful Isabell Larue of Engineer Your Space has designed a drum shade that'll fit right over your existing ugly light fixture. Plus it doesn't need an electrician or any electrical skills! Pick up what you need on your lunch hour or on your way home from work today and you can have a great looking new light fixture for your space with a minimal amount of work tomorrow morning, in time to have people over tomorrow night and enjoy all Sunday.

Check out episode three for the full video tutorial on Engineer Your Space.
