Can You Adapt?
Do you remember me talking about my hatred for can lights, and the remedy I had found for said plight here? Well, I went ahead and purchased the adapter and shade, and I tell you, it's pretty neat how easily it all went together. However, let me warn you (I found out the hard way,) that you can't use any old lamp shade. The adapter socket is bigger than a lamp socket and the standard size shade won't fit. But, there are plenty of other options out there. Just make sure it's made to fit with a pendant light.
I am having a bit of a dilemma though. I'm trying to keep the big stuff neutral, and bring in punches of color with the details. I haven't been able to get to the details yet, so keep that in mind. BUT, I'm toying with the idea of painting the shade. I love the silver, don't get me wrong...I just wonder if it's too much silver. Ehh, if I don't like it in the end, I can always change it, right? What would you do? Hmmm?
