I have wanted a pendant light to hang over the kitchen table for a while
but, what I want cost $250 and more, usually, more.
I struggled with that and y'all know me ... I change my mind from time to time
I was worried about that expense for something I might get tired of in a year or two
plus, I am trying to save up for my spring time travels to my kids in Virginia and California
I need to be selling the silver, not buying a pendant light!
So one Saturday afternoon I gathered up the guts to a porch style lantern, a shade, chain, rings, wiring and a ceiling canopy from our chandelier stash and ask my Mr to help me make this pendant light
I sprayed it with Rust-o-leum Oil Rubbed Bronze and Antique Brass
I love the texture of a burlap shade
I am on the lookout an 18" drum shade and then I think I will have exactly what I have seen online
or at least close enough for me ... it will be easy to change this shade
I am really happy with it
and we made it with stuff we already had around the house
Here is the finished dandyshandy, painted with ASCP, CoCo
