Light Fixture Enclosure
Disguise an existing light fixture by building a fabric-covered enclosure for it.
Modern lights that didn't fit the new scheme of this dining room are surrounded with a fabric-covered box to make them work with the updated look.
Materials and Tools:
1. Cut four pieces of wood, and then nail them together to make a rectangular box without a top or bottom.
2. Use glue and a staple gun to tightly secure the fabric over the frame.
3. Cut four long lengths of copper wire that will extend from the enclosure to the ceiling and wrap one end of each around a screw. Secure a screw into each of the upper inside corners of the box, tightening the wire into position as you do.
4. Install hooks into the ceiling. Hold the enclosure in place over the existing lights, and then attach the wire to the ceiling hooks. Adjust as necessary so the enclosure is level.
