Budget DIY: Make An Oversized Ceiling Mount Shade

Budget DIY: Make An Oversized Ceiling Mount Shade

We've always been DIY people at heart, but more than that we're the type that chose to go out on a limb and make something for ourselves, even when there's no tutorial to follow or pictures to look at. Sherry and John over at Young House Love share the same DIY spirit, so when they wanted to make an oversized shade for their typical ceiling mount fixture they blazed a trail and took pictures along the way!

They started with the same typical ceiling mount fixture that is installed in many homes. They removed the cover and determined they could use the rod that held the glass shade in place, to hold their new inexpensive find. After locating a large shade on the cheap, they used cloth to make a diffuser and attached it to the bottom.

The end result is simply smashing and comes in at $32! This designer look is not only good looking, but easy to recreate in your own home, so make sure you hop over and take a look at their step-by-step photo tutorial to see how to make it happen in your own home.

Thanks Sherry and John!
