For a while now, my husband and I have been talking about how we could cover the light fixture chain in our kitchen. It was beginning to stare at us, with its harsh brass color and yellow cord strung through the links (I know, a little dramatic, but we were itching for a change:)). It was time for a new look, but we needed to figure out how to cover the chain without taking the whole light fixture out of the ceiling, because that wasn’t an option for us. So, we decided to cover the chain with fabric, and below is the tutorial of how we did it. If you have any light fixture chains in your home that you would like to see covered, I hope this tutorial is helpful for you! We are really thrilled with how it turned out. I will say, It is a bit of a different look, but it adds a subtle uniqueness to a space, which I really enjoy (much more than a harsh chain staring back at me!:)). The fun part is that you could use neutral colored fabric to give your light fixture a softer look, or you could use bold colored fabric to make your fixture really pop. Anything goes!:)
*All you need is a light fixture chain you want covered, a favorite piece of fabric, and a glue gun
This is just a strip of fabric from a curtain that we had gotten at target
*You want it to be snug, but not so tight that you cannot move the fabric up the chain
O my! If you can see beyond my horribly cared for glue gun!
*As you glue, the fabric will naturally begin to form a scrunch look, which is what you want
I hope you enjoy trying this out on some of the fixture chains in your home!:)
I also wanted to let you know that a 10×10 print of my original mixed media painting, “And She Chose to Listen to Rhythms of Grace,” is in the shop!
I will be adding some more prints of my originals to the shop this week!:) You can find updates on my facebook page, or subscribe to my blog over on the right hand sidebar to receive updates in your email.
Have a wonderful day!:)
