Adding a Drum Shade?

mamacottiJune 14, 2010

Does anyone know if it's even possible to add a drum shade to a chandelier? I'm assuming I'd have to have the shade custom made...because I can't imagine how you'd attach it otherwise. Which would bring me to another question...where does one go for that???

The chandelier I'm thinking of is the World Imports 8-light Medici. We have the 24-light monster in our entry, and we love it. The dining room is right there off the entry, so the moment you walk in you see both lights. I want them to go together, but not match ecactly.

I'd love a drum shade chandelier since I have a round dining table, but they all have to work together.

Any creative types out there with any helpful ideas?

Thanks so much!

A ompany called Dainolite in Toronto makes custom shades to slide over your chandelier and mount on the individual arms of your chandelier.
I would contact them and find a dealer in your area
