I modernized my chandelier a few months back but the globes were so yellow and boring, it really irked me.
I have always loved seeded glass but didn’t even think to try the globes from Home Depot or Lowes, I stupidly assumed they just wouldn’t fit. Boy was I wrong!
I cleaned the fixture took all the old globes down replaced all the bulbs so they matched and painstakingly screwed the rings back into place and I was in love! For about 30 seconds.
It wasn't exactly what the Pottery Barn fixture was but it was close enough and I was fine with it. Then my incredibly brilliant 8 year old says," mom come down off the ladder and look at it, it doesn't look good, what are those white things showing?" ahhh what a smart boy!! Ok so off with the rings, off with the bulbs and off with the globes. I had some paint that was similar to an ORB look so I painted all the sockets and viola!!! NOW it looks awesome!!! NOW I am in luuuuurve!! I am sure I would have noticed it as soon as I stepped down (or maybe not lol) But I was thrilled he had such a good eye and caught that before I wrapped it up.
And just for the record this is MUCH prettier in person :)
