Brass And Copper Pendant Lighting
I love this brass pendant from Restoration Hardware. It’s their Vintage Barn Pendant in Antique Brass and goes for $299-$399. Needless to say that is a bit (well, a lot) outside of our budget at the moment.
It reminded me of a recent find by Bryn Alexandra , who was lucky enough to find a couple of copper pendants at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for $60 each.
Then Amanda from Casa Brasi blogged about a pendant she saw at Home Depot which has the same lines and could quite easily spray-painted for the same look.
Not bad for $30. (Find it here)
Amanda recommends painting it with copper gutter paint because it will be a better color match than regular spray paint. I thought that was pretty genius.
It dawned on me that we have a lamp laying around that isn’t quite the same, but still similar enough to try this with.
I held it up in the kitchen (last night, hence the bad lighting), but in reality it’s not attached anywhere. It would be a lot better than the generic flushmount lighting fixture that came with the house.
I wonder if I should try brass spray paint, since I’m really liking brass right now, or should I try the copper spray paint?
