The light in our homes is just as important as the love in our bedroom’s. Ladies we all know lighting is the most important accessory in a home and if you didn’t know, now you do.
If you have any fluorescent, too bright or too harsh light bulbs lighting up your life it’s time to switch them out for more of a soft subtle light bulb.
Changing out the horrible bright bulbs will transform any room from a hospital cracky feeling to a warm relaxed one.
Always choose soft lighting for your home and especially in your vault and/or dressing room. The absolutely worst idea is to get dressed with a horrible bright light which I like to call the “cellulite light”. Ladies you know what I’m talking about. Hit the hardware store and get all new light bulbs in a warmer softer tone. I always take my lighting seriously, it’s not classy if you don’t.
If your lighting situation needs a complete over-haul and the chandelier isn’t in the monthly budget just do a quick shade fix. And last but not least if Target isn’t hitting the lamp shade mark… opt for a more creative solution and make your own. I did.
What you will need:
old lamp shade
scissors to cut off the old fabric
glue gun- this should be in every ladies tool box
1/2 yard of fabric or trim to glue around the base of shade and bottom too give it that finished look.
1 yard fabric of choice to wrap around the lamp base itself. I chose cream tule.
I went with a shabby chic vintage vibe. Ladies always find your light, your face will love you for it.
