Needs New Sleeves

Remember my all-white chandelier in the office? Well, recently I finished a quick, cheap project to add a little color to the chandelier.  Here’s a before to refresh your memory:


And the after:

covered_athomewithh You really can’t get any simpler than that and it adds instant color (that can easily be changed) to an otherwise plain light fixture.  If you do this, make sure your paper doesn’t hang over the top of the sleeve (the part near the bulb) so you don’t start a fire. I’ve had mine turned on all day without any issue.
