Materials: Melodi light fixture/with cord assembly

Description: I needed something a bit more elaborate for a modern, hip den (not formal living room), so I purchased three packs of bleached coffee filters (480 ea)and folded each and everyone of them on half, and one more time half, sort of created a paper flower with frills.

Than glued them on top of the shade (White Melodi, and I am still working on takes forever, so please arm yourself with patience!!!!) to achieve a very posh effect.

I will post the pictures I have taken from the process and the finished product when it is installed. Similar fixtures can be find at for over $1200.00 I saved about 1118.00 and you can too!
