I was about to sell my old lamp until I found a whole selection of small lamp shades for chandeliers on sale online. I found a great set of shades and placed them over my existing chandelier lamps. The whole thing came out so great that I went back online and bought a new lamp fixture for my living room. I ended up getting a dark set of lamp shades which I plan on using to give the fixture a change out in another few months.
The shades can come with mini clips which make them very easy to add to the existing chandelier. I recommend these because they are easy to work with. Also, be sure that you choose a shade that will be suited to the wattage of bulbs in your fixture.
I use 60-watt bulbs and had to be sure the fabric shade I chose was all right with them. Fortunately, all the website descriptions come with specific details, measurements, UL listings and photos to make picking these out really easy!
