So when we purchased this home, the kitchen looked like this:
We had so much work to do in here (painting cabinets, new backsplash, etc), and the pendant lights above the kitchen island had to go...they were of all things...bright cobalt blue!!!
So, in an effort to save a few bucks, instead of purchasing new ones, I simply removed the cobalt blue glass and replaced it with these "woven shades" (read: Target wastebaskets!!!) We simply measured and cut holes in the bottom of the wastebaskets so they would fit the fixture...
They worked like a charm, and I get such great feedback about them, I have a hard time confessing that they are really TRASHCANS.
You never know what you can do with a little creativity!
