Ashley made some small but seriously impactful changes to this old light. By saying goodbye to a few details and adding a new bulb, she made a stylish and subtle update.

From Ashley: Old kitchen pendants or chandeliers are easily found at garage sales and thrift stores. I picked this light up for $5 and knew it had potential.

The glass itself was in good shape but the electrical portion of the light had to go. Once I took everything apart, I had most of the pieces I needed to make it a pendant style light.

Making this light a pendant style light and adding an oversized bulb really gave it personality.

Thank you, Ashley!
