I decided that I would attempt to recreate my own version of a lampshade pendant, and I was able to do so for just $25! (You may be able to do this for less if you already own a lampshade or scoop one up on sale.)
Here is how it turned out:
All you need is a Mini Pendant Kit (I found mine at Home Depot for $14.97) and a lampshade with a harp fitter (the kind with the tiny hole instead of the big hole.) I found mine at Ross for $9.99.
Hubby then wired the kit to the ceiling and voila! Complete!!
I decided to do this project in a day, so I didn't go out searching for the most amazing lampshade. But, if I do find one I can't live without, I will just have to bribe Hubby to take down the fixture so I can switch it out. Hmmm....I don't think that will be happening any time soon!
My dining room is still a work in progress, but isn't every room? Have a great weekend, friends!
