One Ugly Light to Faux Stained Glass

So I have this ugly light in my kitchen:

I decided it needed help before I screamed. A hanging light wasn't an option because it's right in front of the freezer and because I'm sure a cat or two would try to take it out! So... I decided to make it look like stained glass:

At this step I just used that paint pen in the background and drew lines all over
it. The yellow is where I started painting it in. I used dixie cups with a 1/4 of an inch of modge podge in them at the bottom and 7 drops of food coloring to get the color. Then I just dabbed the mixture on with a brush and filled in all my spaces!

This is my finished product! Oh, and I didn't have red food coloring so I mixed one part acrylic paint to one part modge podge and got the same effect as food coloring!

I LOVE it now! :)

  1. Hi Amy!

    Thanks for following! :) The ruffle duvet cover is from Target- I love it! :)

  2. That is so incredibly clever! I honestly never would have thought of that. I have a rather ugly light fixture myself and I bet a stained glass effect would look amazing! Mod podge is a miracle worker! ;)

  3. very creative!! i've never seen stained glass done like this before!
