This is cool and cheep to do. Find an old lamp shade at the thrift shop, strip the fabric down to its cage. Spray paint it if you want. Hard wire a pendant light fixture in ($20 at lowes) and tada!! You can also buy knock off ornate ceiling pendants at Lowes for $20 to $60.
Wire Lampshade Cut a wire lampshade frame in half and crimp aluminum radiator grille around the frame. Line the grille with opaque art paper to diffuse the light. Use a light kit to wire the light, cut off the plug, and hard-wire the sconce to the wall. DIY Tip: Use a high-power, low-wattage LED light for long-lasting luminosity and to prevent the paper from getting too hot.
