Turn your outdated bathroom fixture into a vintage-inspired beauty with little more than new shades and a coat of paint! To achieve the look, find small fabric shades that are about the same size as the shades currently on your fixture, then strip off the fabric. Remove the fixture from the wall, then spray-paint it and the lamp shade cages black. Once everything is dry, reattach the fixture to the wall, install the spray-painted cage lamp shades, and swap in filament light bulbs. Now you have a "brand-new" industrial-farmhouse lighting fixture that cost you next to nothing.
