I didn't install the fixture so I don't know how many pieces there are to it, therefore I don't know what to take off in order to replace the bulb.

Thanks, Becky. We do have a ladder. I told my son it needs to be a two person job because I have no idea where my ex-husband got that fixture. I don't want to risk breaking the globe.
Becky that is exactly right.
I had one at the last place I rented. I saw the glass at Lowe's when I went in there once. They probably still have them.
Becky, your advice was spot on. We've replaced the bulbs. Thank you!
Happy to help Sha.
That's what I was thinking, Aime. Thank you. I'll enlist my son's help.
This fixture was installed in 2008 and the bulb has just now died. I'm thinking we put a curly-cue bulb inside and I have another. Hopefully, it'll last another 8 years before it needs to be replaced!
I always get good quality CFL's and rarely need to change them. Phillips is not good quality, I found out. GE seems to last quite a while. I use them exclusively and only need to change one every 3-4 years now.
Thanks for the tip about brands. The big box store where I buy light bulbs mainly carries Phillips. Not sure where to get GE, WallyWorld? Never, ever buy dollar store bulbs!
Wal-mart does carry the GE. I found that they last for several years longer than the Phillips do. Lucky to get a year out of those, and for the price of them they need to last a loong time.
