So I saw these fixtures (black ones below) somewhere online, and thought. Hmmm. I like these. I think the prices were a bit crazy, and I thought how can I replicate these. Well when we were in Houston last week, and stopped by Ikea. I picked up the Melodi light fixture for $12.99 and thought about doing something with it in my daughters bathroom. I quickly changed my mind once I got home and saw the black fixture below. I thought they looked sort of similar, so why now try it. Plus I think I have a thing for installing light fixtures. Something about seeing it come on.
IKEA MELODI LIGHT FIXTURE ($12.99)
THE EXISTING BASIC BUILDER FIXTURE
IT WAS HERE….UNTIL
I decided to spray the Melodi with oil rubbed black spray paint, and up it went.
Mr. Styles likes the fixture and the location. He says…
”It reminds me of alley way lighting. The hall now has an alley effect that will lead up to my room. I like it Babe.”
So it’s up for now, until something new comes my mind. I love light fixtures. We have actually been thinking about installing recessed lighting OURSELVES.
I found this image at the last minute while composing this post. But same concept. I would spray the insides with a copper colored spray paint and spray the outside a glossy white. Ideas are spinning around as I type. To bad I only had one fixture to play with,
So what are your thoughts on the Melodi? And has anyone installed recessed lighting yourself? Do tell, please.
