light action

This is my current light fixture over our kitchen table. I have always loved this classic shape but the whole fixture needs a little face-lift.
The chain is too long. The hardware too silver. The globe too plain (and dirty!)

So I have gathered a few ideas to give my little light a make-over:

First, I found these  from Schoolhouse Electric .

Don't you just love stripes?
I think with some painters tape and some craft paint I could accomplish this look nicely...

And look at this great make-over from The DIY Showoff. I love the black detail on this one.
This is made from a candle base and a globe.

Now I just have to sweet talk Sweet Man into taking it down for me so I can work some paint magic...
