Light Charms - Beautify your lamps and chandeliers


If you have an outdated lamp sitting in your attic, there's a lot more you can do with it than simply put it up at a garage sale.

However, even the lighting fixtures themselves need to be fixed up once in a while. As time passes, the lamp designs in your home slowly fall out of style, or lose the extra sparkle they used to have when you first got them. Crystal accents slowly fall off, and vibrant lampshade colors eventually fade. Of course, replacing all the lighting fixtures in your home can be extremely expensive, not to mention highly impractical.
