✥ Take a 2nd Look {Pendent Light} ✥

I've had quite a few questions from peeps wanting to see the pendent light I made with the light turned off.
I didn't forget to take one that way, it's just that taking a pic of mercury glass may be a level or ten above my photography skills!

But I did my best. The reflective properties in the glass-like spray paint make the pendent appear like this. The reflective glass is great, it gives the feeling of light even when it's not on. Whenever there's a light on no the home the glass looks like this.

 Then with all the lights off and lighting coming on from behind the pendent, it takes on a smoky gray color.
 I really like that the pendent is ever changing. It's a fun addition to a kitchen that's begging for some pizazz. It was my hope that the exposed light hardware would add some edge to my otherwise boring space.

Thanks for asking to see more of my light, I'm happy to oblige- even if my skills aren't up to the challenge!!


  1. I would like a tutorial :) I have myself made a couple of pendants but never with a tumbler.
