Protective Screen for Light Bulbs?

    I'm looking for some ideas for making a protective bulb cover for my python's enclosure. I have a pretty rugged and ugly screen mesh cover now, so she is safe, but i'm looking for a more attractive idea.

    The bulbs are hanging inside the enclosure in ceramic fixtures. It is just the fixtures and bulbs with no reflectors.

    I could easily make a wooden box with a screen on the bottom that fits over the bulbs, but that would take away a lot of light.

    I have a couple ideas, but I'd like some suggestions.

    If you have any pictures of what you have done, please post them up.

    Thanks!

    i'm thinking about buying something like this.
    It's made to hold pens and pencils. The problem is, the bottom is usually a solid piece of metal. I'm thinking i could use a hole saw to cut out the bottom and put a piece of screen there. I think it would look pretty nice. Any input on the idea?
