Longing for Light

Longing for Light
It’s not too hard to see the potential of this light fixture.  Great lines, great size, just an unfortunate brassy finish.  But that was easily fixed with paint and polish, and now it’s the poshest pendant in Tracy’s pad. 
I actually bought a very similar light at the thrift store once.  But then I got it home and realized it was super squatty. Not at all long and elegant like Tracy’s. (Picture it with about two-thirds cut off). Plus, I was hoping I could disassemble it and paint it, and not have to tape off all those panes of glass, but that wasn’t possible, so my laziness won out and back to the donation pile it went. It never even made it out of the garage!  Sigh.  I will live vicariously through Tracy today.  See more on her blog soulstyle.

    I am longing for a light fixture like this one. I actually don’t mind it in either finish. Although, the brass-y finish could be toned-down a bit. Great and simple transformation.

    Beautiful transformation! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
