Thrifty Bathroom Light Fixture

I’m just about ready to post about our guest bathroom redo.  While I am sorting through those pictures, here is a quick little project that I’m pleased to share the results of.  Our guest bath originally had this standard 90’s light bar above the mirror:


We found this replacement at a Salvation Army store for only $10.


I wasn’t wild about the bright gold accents, so I pulled them off and spray painted them copper.


The final product:


I pulled the rings that covered the light sockets off of the original fixture, painted them copper, and added them to the new fixture to give it a more finished look.


We had intended to use vintage style Edison bulbs, but found they were too dim for the space.  These clear halogen bulbs give off plenty of light and still gave us the look we were going for.


It looks great and you can’t beat the price.  I love a bargain piece!
