Ceiling light trio

I wanted to do something fun with the lights in the kids room. What I had in mind was something that was reminiscent of lollipops…

My sister had some old lamp shades lying around in the cellar. I had a couple of nights in front of the telly sewing on new fabric. It was easier than I thought, and good thing is you can’t see the bad stitching when the light is in the ceiling…

Tricky bit was the electrics. Luckily I found a ceiling cup that had a junction box built in. It’s the one with three holes at the top left in the picture. I used a few old lamp parts, but I’m sure it’s easier (and safer?) to just go and buy what you need. Anyway, it was so much fun to hang them up, and luckily they work!!!
