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!
