Modern Light Fixture Goes Shabby

I don’t mind our breakfast nook light fixture but I wanted to add some of my own style in our dining area without switching out the whole light.
I brought my Raggy Burlap Lampshades along with me from my home in CT.
I decided to go ahead and use them while we are living here.

I removed the glass, dusted and added some white and silver garland that I purchased at The Nosey Goose.
Then topped it with my shades.

Each bulb (4) is 25 watts – plenty of light for dining.

Burlap overload…I know. This natural texture makes me like the blue walls
and cherry cabinets a lot better. A little rustic element.
Later I will post about those floors – I applied laminate wood floors
over vinyl in our rental home.

Hi Holly, clever girl. Your chandy looks wonderful, especially with the drapes and the table is ready for Fall.

I do love how burlap looks against a soft blue. If you're like me, you're trying to get the \”new\” out of that kitchen! ha!

Your shade covers are incredible and loving all the burlap, really softens your room. Why not? That silver and white garland is a great accent for the burlap shade covers. When you live in rental homes you still want your home to reflect you, great job.
