Kitchen Pendant Update!
Above is the finished product, but let me take you along my path of en"light"enment (hehe) and show you how I got there. Do you remember here, when I finally banished my can-light in favor of a pendant over the "island"? And how, I just wasn't quite sure how the pendant I got, worked in the space? It all just seemed like too much silver. And, although I love me some silver, it needed to be tempered. So, I started brain-storming my options.
THEN, do you remember my visit to ABC Home and how I found this glorious-ness...
and fell in love? Well naturally, I wanted it for my own. However, my pocket book was not in agreement and thoroughly poo-poo-ed the idea. So, I decided to make it myself. A $20 drum shade from Target, a little paint with a steady hand, and there you have it. Easy Peasy! It doesn't have the tiny pleats of the original, but it's a fabulous substitute for the real thing! I needed a little color in the kitchen and, let me tell you, this little number delivers!
Finally, I feel like it is perfect! Color and style all in one! Now I can move on, and find something else to obsess about!
UPDATE: Just wanted everyone to be able to see how amazing this thing looks when it's on an night. What a warm rosy glow!
