This was a super easy project I did for Cooper’s nursery. I wanted a hanging light fixture and my husband forbid a chandelier so while we were shopping at Home Depot I ran across this pendant in the sale area. It was originally $29.00 but was on sale for $19.00. It’s called the Hampton Bay Warehouse Pendant. I believe it’s used for garage lighting.
Here’s the inside of the fixture.
Since there are a lot of brass elements in his room I decided to spray the inside of the pendant brass.
I lightly sprayed the inside 3 times and in between coats I used a rag to clean the inside of the pendant up to make sure it was smooth.
The outside of the pendant I sprayed black. Again I sprayed it with 3 light coats.
I didn’t want to use just a regular lightbulb since you’d be able to see it so I ordered a silver tipped lightbulb from Schoolhouse Electric. Not only are they prettier than a normal bulb it cuts down on the glare.
My sweet husband was nice enough to install it for me and he even liked how it turned out and I don’t think he cussed once so it obviously was really easy to install.
The project was cheap, easy and a great compromise between my husband and I. I’d like to think of it as my man chandelier!!
