DIY Painted Pendant Lights

Back with the painted pendant light update that helped make a big difference in adding warmth to the kitchen update! We bought these pendant lamps five years ago when we first moved into the house and gutted and renovated the kitchen. I recently was tempted to replace them with some new taupe lights for the space to warm it up but decided to use paint instead to save myself quite a bit of money! Plus now I won’t feel bad painting them whenever I have an itch for an update! But just check out how much warmer it makes the space:

I considered trying the baking soda technique to give the lights a bit more texture but ended up deciding against it just because I didn’t have enough on hand haha. So I taped off everything and gave it three coats of paint, letting it dry in between each coat.
