Removing 1971 from our bathroom, Part 3- the light fixture

Our bathroom came with a very boxy light fixture that shorted out.  I neglected to photograph it before I removed it, but it was pretty bad.  I wanted to go the cheapest route possible, so went to the habitat restore to see what they had in the way of light fixtures.  I love the look of wrought iron,with art glass shades, but this is what I ended up finding.  Not bad for $15, so I brought it home, and picked up a can of rubbed bronze spray paint.

I really love how the spray paint changed its look, and hanging it with the lights pointing up instead of down really helped too.  I’m not a big fan of the glass shades, but I know if I am patient enough I should be able to find a great deal on the ones I want.  The light fixture that I wanted was $180, and while this isn’t it, for 90% less its close enough for me.  🙂

Next on the list… repainting the cabinet and removing the popcorn from the ceiling.
