Quirky Light Gets a Makeover that Makes Sense

Tracie from Cleverly Inspired picked up this light at the local Re-Store years ago.  It had sat in her garage for so long that she had almost decided to donate at it back to Re-Store!  ” I am so happy I decided to be patient until this idea popped in my head,” Tracie tells us.

The light originally came with 25 rectangular glass panels.  Wanting to introduce a little texture into all that metal, what Tracie realized was that wood rectangles could potentially look really good with this light fixture.  She cut and stained 25 rectangular pieces of lightweight balsa wood.  The brassy metal light fixture got sprayed down with red paint for an updated look, then the wood panels were attached.  It’s the perfect addition to Tracie’s new guest bedroom!

    written article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and

  4. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a
    blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
    you have hit the nail on the head. The problem
    is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

  5. It’s difficult to find educated people about this topic, however, you sound like you know what
    you’re talking about! Thanks
