I couldn't help myself. When I saw modern LED light bulbs at Lowes on sale for $9.99 each I jumped. They are supposed to last for 25 years! What? I could be 59 years old before I change a light bulb in this fixture. So worth the $9.99 price tag! This is the fixture where I decided to use them. This is a before picture.
Another before shot, so you can get a good look at it. What I want to do is take the whole thing down and paint it and get some clear seeded glass shades, but this step will have to wait.
For now, I just removed the alabaster shades and let the bulbs be the show for now. They are uber cool in my opinion.
Look at the base. Such a cool design. I can't decide if I want to cover them with shades or just leave them exposed like this.
The bulbs give off a soft white light and really illuminate the room. I hope to give you another post soon on the complete light fixture makeover, so stay tuned!
p.s. Happy Memorial weekend!
