Affordable Updates: Amazon Lighting

If you want to update a room in a snap, swap out the light fixtures.

For the past year, I've been replacing the ugly builder-grade fixtures in my early 2000s home. I'm talking boob lights everywhere, florescent monstrosities in the kitchen and laundry room and dated globe lights in all the bathrooms. I love the light fixture transformation - it's nearly instantaneous, easy ('cause my husband does it) and can be really affordable.

I like to change the fixture then walk in and out of the room repeatedly, ooh-ing and ah-ing. Sometimes I invite my husband and children to join me - they always decline. This step is not necessary, but truly fulfilling.

Some of my favorite stores to source from are Amazon, Wayfair and Birch Lane. The Studio McGee line from Target has some really beautiful options, too.

If you're ready to start with the worst offenders - the dreaded boob light - here are some of my favorite semi-flush mount options from Amazon. Keep scrolling for all the links.

  1. Antique Brass Drum Shade Light

  2. Brass Schoolhouse Light - these beauties are going in my upstairs hall. Swoon.

  3. Liberty Gold 3-Light Drum Pendant
