Introduction: Lite Bright Dome Light :: by ThriftStoreRemix

About: For most of my life, I hoped to develop an outlet for my creative energy. I tried to play the piano. I can’t play the piano. I tried to play the Bass. I can’t play the Bass. I can’t draw…

During my home office redesign home office I created this kewl lighting feature.

My Lite Bright Dome Light project hits both color and costs with both guns a blasting. The objective is to create a colorful light fixture on a shoestring budget.

What you'll need:

* Get your favorite colored sharpies or any permanent colored marker will do
* Clear packing tape
* Scissors
* That's it. I love Easy and Cheap projects


1) Gently remove the dome light
2) Remove the tape from the roller and place enough strips to cover the whole inside
3) Use your wonderful, fantabolous imagination using the Sharpies to create a KEWL design

This was an easy but effective project. Additionally, if things get out of hand, as they often do, you can remove the tape and start all over again. Do Over's ROCK!

I hope you enjoy the project.

    Lisa M said --- If you live in your own home I was thinking that glass paint could also be used. Delta offers a transparent glass paint in many colors.

    Those glass domes are not expensive at all if you really want to ditch the tape, head on out to your nearest home improvement store and pick up one or two. You could make a couple to change with the seasons! Even if you're in an the original(unpainted) dome to put back up when you move.

    Thanks so much for the positive vibrations. Interestingly, try using broken colored glass. I think it would also make for a great dome redo.
