Even if you don’t stay on top of the latest lighting trends, you may have noticed drum shade fixtures are making a comeback. Drum shades fixtures are typically seen on table and standing lamps all the time as they have been in style for a very long time. The popularity of drum shade chandeliers probably stems from the fact they work with nearly any style of decor, and now their widespread availability makes it possible to find one that will fit into almost any price point. I’ve recently noticed these shades used not only as lamp shades and chandeliers, but also as ceiling mount fixtures! I’ve included some fantastic examples of drum shades and a wonderful DIY project used to cover a current ugly fixture. Check it out!
I know, it’s very similar to the first picture! But I love this chic fixture so much I just had to include it again!
Here is a FANTASIC example of a DIY drum shade from the blog, Young House Love (www.younghouselove.com/…/reader-redesign-a-contemporized-chandelier/). This pretty drum chandelier only cost $32.00 for the entire project!
What do you think? Looking at all these great fixtures just might have inspired me to make my own drum shade chandelier! Stay tuned for more!
