This post shows the five steps to decorate a carport chandelier.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows new little shades, notice the plastic wrapping below the shade. The plastic wrapping needs to be removed before use, if the lamp was to hot, the plastic could cause a fire.

Step 4: So how do you get up to the lamp, a 6-foot ladder could be used, but I used the truck that was parked in the driveway. Fig.4 shows the truck perfectly parked underneath the chandelier.
