A Light Bulb Moment

I came across this great lighting accessory that I just had to share!  These are shades that clip onto recessed and can lighting fixtures.  They are made by a company called Stonegate Designs and they have a listing of retailers who carry their products on their website.

I don’t think I can get this picture any bigger without distorting it, so you might want to visit the website if you want a better look.

I am trying to find out from the company if “can” lighting means track lighting.  If so, I plan on purchasing a couple of these to try out on my own track lighting and review here on my blog.  I also have recessed lighting, but I’m more interested in updating our existing track lighting in the kitchen and great room without totally redoing it. 

Edit/Update: Just heard back from the company that they do not work on track lighting ~ only recessed lighting fixtures.  Bummer.

Love this idea!

Very cool. Let us know what you find, I have track lighting in my great room and it could use a facelift! Thanks, Kathy!

I have a recessed light at the end of my family room over the fireplace. It gives a harsh down light in photos even if we use the dimmer. I think this might be just the thing to camouflage it and soften the light! What do you think? Thanks.

Oh, bummer, Kathy :(

We have recessed lighting in our family room and master bath. I have been seeing where you can now easily replace the recessed lighting with light fixtures which I still want to do in our master bath. We have low ceilings in the family room so it'll have to remain recess lighting.

I want to change out the 80s lights in our kitchen now that I've seen it done on several home shows!! I'll have to ask our neighbor John if he could install the lights . . . once I know what I want in there!

xxoo
