Here are some pics and this is all in one room - each room has at least 1 set if not 2!! The house was a flip and the builders just put these everywhere until I can replace with nicer fixtures I want to at least replace these glass shades. Thanks!

I think there are systems in N America (there are in Europe) where you can buy a chandelier bulb and then clip the shade onto the bulb. Then you just have to find your shades?

My only concern is that their wattage cannot be too hot as to burn through the lampshade - LEDs are cooler but please check with your local supplier as I am not sure what the regulations are in the North America.

Flippers must be able to buy these by the truckload because I have them in my flipped house too! We replaced the globes with clear ones, and are using the 'new' Edison light bulbs. The light bulbs alone give them great character! Oh, and our sconces are turned the other way!

Hi all thanks for your input. I just need the fabric shades or shields for wall sconces since they hit so close to the wall regular shades don't fit :(

Sorry Bobbi I didn't see your comment so you have naked
bulbs? I like the idea of turning them will try it!

Yes, naked bulbs and naked shades! It looks pretty cool, actually. We were going to just buy new sconces but then we got this idea and saved a bit of $$$$ doing it this way. I think the globes or shades, whatever they're called were $5 and the bulbs are $10, so that's a lot cheaper than a new sconce!
