Quick Fix - Bye-bye Brass!

We purchased our brass filled house about five years ago.  

Before moving in, we changed out the brass door hinges and door knobs to oil rubbed bronze. 

We changed out a few of the brass ceiling fixtures in the first year of home ownership.  Then just "lived" with the rest for far too long. 

This little brass octagonal beauty has been a thorn in my side! 

It is located in a small, dark hallway.  I didn't want to replace this with anything that resembled a "boob" know the ones!  Another requirement was white opaque glass, not the yellow/parchment colored glass that so many fixtures have.  An old-fashioned schoolhouse looking fixture was what I had in mind.  I was pleasantly surprised to find this Hampton Bay Esdale fixture at our local Home Depot for less than $30. 

Much better!
