Do you ever think if you were a celebrity what type of “line” you would come out with? I have. I am not interested in a perfume line (unless it smells like paint!), a clothing line, or even a fabric line. What I want is a line of lighting. Stop laughing, I am serious! Custom lighting can change a room faster that you can say thrift shop mama. The thing with lighting is, people are sort of scared of it.
On another tangent. Have you ever seen something awesome on this here blog and said “Dude. Mandi finds ALL the good crap. I hate her.”
BEST NEWS EVER!! You don’t have to hate me anymore!!! Because today I am combining both opening paragraph stories and giving away a custom light resurrected by yours truly!
I have been on the hunt for a month looking for the perfect piece to rehab and giveaway to one lucky reader, there were lots of things that were good-ish but nothing that rang my bell. Until I was in AZ. It’s a good thing that my girl Jilly is as big of a hoarder as I am. She had a few of these beat up dirty industrial pendant lights hanging out in her garage without a home or a purpose. If you remember I used one in Kelsey’s room (after a coat of yellow spray paint) and I saved one for you!
Amazing how something simple like a few coats of spray paint can change a piece so drastically right?!
I used Krylon Dual in White Satin and the perfect vibrant minty green is Rustoleum Green Apple. (The electrical was also changed out so that it can plug into your wall and doesn’t need to be hard wired.)
So what do you think? Do you have a home for this great light?
