Oil Rubbed Bronze Pendant Light

My husbands uncle gave me this light and I wanted to do something different with it for our kitchen. I search the net looking for something and walla.This is how we took a plain white pendant light and put an Oil rubbed bronze finish on it.

From this

We just disassembled the pendant light, wiped it down to make sure it was free of any dirt and oil.  Lightly sanded it with 220 grit paper.  Then my dear husband spray it with Metallic copper. Let dry to the touch.  Then sprayed on the Metallic oil rubbed bronze. He had to spray it a third time with the copper just lightly because the bronze was a little darker than what we wanted.  Preference is all yours.  Then let it dry overnight.

Then he put the fixtures back together and now we have a wonderful new pendant light for our kitchen.

Wonders of taking something old and turning it into something that looks new.
