Even though it seems like we're always putting money into improving and updating our home, we're still kind of tightwads in the things that we do.
Most recently we updated some of our light fixtures. This is the fan/light in the kitchen. It wasn't horrible, but neither of us liked the lightbulb covers, and the fan blades weren't doing much for us either.
So instead of buying a whole new ceiling fan (way more than we wanted to spend), we decided to just switch out the old light covers with some bell-shaped frosted glass ones.
Then we flipped over the fan blades and painted them a solid brown color. Ta da.
We did the same to the ceiling fan in the front room too.
In the bedrooms were light covers like these. They were very bright, but not our cup of tea on looks.
I wanted lights with brown edges, but we couldn't find any with the white glass, so we bought this low-priced package of lights...
