Decorating a Shop Light for the Sewing Room

This 4 foot shop light is in my sewing room and looked too ugly by itself so I made a simple cover for it to match the room decor. This light does not get hot so there is no danger of fire and the dust doesn't show as much. Just measure the light, cut out strips of fabric leaving an opening where the ceiling chain goes and add a valance or other trim.

You are very creative, Pat! I never thought of using a shop light in my craft room, it sure would help with the eye strain from my late night crafting! Thanks for sharing your idea.

Actually, it's not wallpaper, it's fabric. I used double sided tape at the top to anchor the fabric and then stapled everything down. Tiny trim boards were covered with the fabric for the verticle seams and nailed on with paneling nails. This room is in a single wide mobile home so of course, everything is paneling.

I totally redecorated the room which is 10 x 10 and now contains a 5 x 6 cutting table. If anyone is interested, just e-mail me and I will send a link to a photo album which shows progressive photos of the complete remodeling job for my new sewing room. Thanks everyone for your comments.
