See, the light looks great. It's perfect for the room and the mottled finish really doesn't bother me at all.
There's only one small problem.
In order to hold the bowl shade in place, I have to use rubber bands. My previous idea of using some wire doesn't work because the rim of the bowl gets in the way.
It's not that I don't think that the blue rubber rings that hold my broccoli together are aesthetically pleasing. They just might not be the right thing for this particular room.
I think I am going to have to chalk this one up to a learning experience and move on.
So, where can I get an inexpensive fixture to hang my bowl from???
