Mini Makeover: Ceiling Pendant

Back in September I bought this lamp shade from B&Q with plans to spray it gold and hang it in our lounge.

I got as far as spraying it…

But it wasn’t hung. It looked, I thought, too much like a gilded birdsnest. So it was back to B&Q and this time I bought a steely grey paint with plans to hang the finished article in the snug instead.

For almost ten months this huge and very fragile artifact has been moved from pillar to post and eventually stashed in the loft where it was beginning to look like rubbish…

….until now.

I’m rather pleased with how it looks, especially when the light is on and you can see the pretty glow within it. Are you convinced?! (btw….it’s an eco bulb so the rest of the room doesn’t look very light in the image below….takes some warming up…..)
