Hobnail Milk Glass Light

I've been wanting to spruce up our kitchen for a while now.  It's one of the areas of my house that I'm not totally in love with.  We didn't pick the countertops or colors because those things had already been determined by the builder when we bought it.  We did a few things like add a faux tin backsplash and replace the faucet but that's pretty much where we stopped.  So, I'm starting out by making over the area by the sink.  The pendant fixture above the sink seemed like a good place to start.  I had this milk glass pendant in the garage for a while.  My mom found it for around $5 at a thrift store and snatched it up for me.  The brass was in pretty bad shape so I gave it a quick coat of this spray paint.  It's definitely the closest thing to real brass that I've found.  (Thanks Centsational Girl for the tip)

Here's the area before with a basic pendant light


And now with the new addition.  I love that it's a little eclectic and vintage.  I'm working on a few other mini updates in this area that I'll share soon.
