It wasn’t until I started looking at lighting options that I started to realize how economical they are. If you take into consideration how much time you spend in your own home, I’m kind of lamenting the fact that I settled for “builder grade” fixtures for so long.

Lighting makes such a huge statement in a home and, as this list will show, it isn’t that expensive to upgrade your fixtures. Start with one room and slowly expand to the others. Heck, even adding a light a month will get you 12 amazing fixtures over the course of a year!

Crafted of metal in a rusty black finish, this hanging light features 3 bowl-shaped clear glass shades dropping from a triangle base with 2 sloping chains and 1 curved rod.
  • ⭐️ [FREE SIMPLE INSTALLATION of PENDANT LIGHT] – The pendant lighting for kitchen island package includes all the necessary assembling and installation parts along with clearly marked cords. Having a previous experience and some electrical knowledge should be enough to qualify you for doing the installation by yourself instead of hiring an electrician and spending more money.

This absolutely gorgeous 3 light fixture would be perfect over an island or dining room table of any house but it is perfectly suited to compliment farmhouse style decor.

I love the rusty black finish and the height is adjustable which is a huge plus. The lights are dimmable too which can help provide just enough light when you need it. Pair with your favorite bulb and you are ready to go!

These lamp “shades” look excellent on pendant lights or side table lights but where they really excel is adding an industrial farmhouse type feel to otherwise not very farmhouse style ceiling fans.

We need to stay cool in summer, that much is true. With these metal lamp guards, you can do so in style! I think this would look excellent on a white fan as well.

Keep in mind this is just the shades you are buying, not the whole ceiling fan. You can even outfit your pendant lights or possibly even bathroom vanity depending on the attachment style and base size.

Remember, if your ceiling fan is a putrid brass or other shade from the 80’s. With a little time and a few cans of spray paint, you can get this look without paying a designer price!
