Boob Light Makeover

March 14, 2012

Our home had about one of these boob lights in each room when we moved in. I think landlords put them in because they're cheap and not terribly offensive. They're just not very impressive and quite generic. Since I know how to hard wire the electrical work, I promptly changed them out for other fixtures mostly because I don't like the sort of light they cast but if you are stuck with yours here's some good ideas to revamp what you've got.

We have "boob" lights too- I just purchased vintage lantern style for our hall.

I love the compass, but our ceiling is textured. :(

haha I've always called them boob lights too. My apartment is full of them! I definitely need to get a ladder and do something with those sad little lights.

Haha! Hubby thinks its funny I hate them so much and when we redid our lighting I went out of the way to avoid them.

I always call them the BOOB light I'd rather go back to those dust collecting glass dishes that used to be cool then weren't and now are ;) I have tried a few boob light fixes but these are too cool! Do they have a technical name?? Contractor lighting maybe...boob light is waaaay better! Thanks for sharing!
