DIY Brass Bowl Pendant + Kitchen Sneak Peek

Our recent excursion to Goodwill proved quite fruitful… I turned this boring old brass bowl into our new glamoupuss kitchen pendant.  My husband thought I was nuts when I picked it up…
It was pretty, but all bent & warped.  Luckily the metal was thin enough that it could be pushed back into shape.  The hubs drilled a hole through the bottom & we inserted a simple light kit.  Luckily, that same trip, we picked up another chandelier that we weren’t using the chain or canopy for so we attached that as well.
I did spray paint the canopy black & then wash over it with a Brillo pad to reveal some of that brass to help tie it into the fixture better.  Isn’t it lovely?  I am seriously obsessed with it.  This light has completely transformed the kitchen.
Here is a little before reminder…
Here it is after some chalkboard paint, new handles & campaign inspired braces, & our new pendant!
I also painted our window sash black… I think it made a big difference.
Now the kitchen is almost complete.  Some new lights (big idea for those!) & some window treatments & that is it!!
We had a very busy DIY weekend… so be on the look out for lots of new projects.
