Introduction: Turning a Light Fixture Into a Lamp!

First you pick your fixture and determine if it can be used as a lamp with some flipping and rewiring!

Step 1: Create a Unique One of a Kind Piece!

Pick your color and the fixture of your choice, then go to your hardware store of choice and purchase the lighting kit of your liking! Make sure you have needle nose pliers and wire cutters close by!

Take your fixture apart to clean and prep for painting!

Once fixture is cleaned and dried its time to spray paint!

I chose to frost the glass as well.

Step 2: Once Painted

Once you have painted your pieces of your fixture, put it back together!

Follow the instructions on the lighting kit you purchased from hardware store!

Step 3: Finished Product

After following instructions on the lighting kit, my project is complete!!
