Bathroom Lighting: Quick fix to update a dated bathroom vanity light

Bathroom, Decor, DIY, Lighting

I needed a quick inexpensive way to update a very dated bathroom lighting fixture in a bathroom without replacing it. Adding to the challenge was the fact that the fixture wasn’t centered over the vanity. My solution was to make a cover to hide the existing fixture – it cost less than $15 to make, and I didn’t have to use any power tools!

Here’s some of the things I used to make the light cover:

Light Diffuser:

Plexiglass (Acrylic) sheet for diffuser (11”x14” ⅛” thick):

Mod Podge:

Cover paint finish:

Chalk paint (sheepskin) 

Wood tint 

White wax
