We all have those blasted boob lights. I have 4 that I wanted to replace, but with my low ceilings, I needed something close to the ceiling. As I was shopping the Pottery Barn website, I came across the Mia Faceted-Crystal Flushmount Light. It was lovely, but for $129 a piece, I'd be shelling out way more than I could stomach for 4 of them, even if I waited for a sale.
Can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint
Nail and Hammer or Dremmel tool with metal drill bit
String of acrylic crystals (affiliate link)
Optional: yarn or string to help measure circumference
There's a small piece that screws on the bottom and holds up a metal circle that the dome rests on. Once I removed the glass dome (setting aside for a bird bath), I was able to remove the light from the ceiling and start putting holes in the outer edge to hold the end of each crystal strand.
Next I needed to put holes in the metal circle.
I separated my crystal strand into strings with 6 crystals.
I attached all the crystals to the small circle first.
Then I slipped it on the metal rod and started attaching around the outside.
When I was done, I screwed on the end piece, flipped it over and had a pretty looking light!
This one has crystals of varying size
