A friend gave me this light fixture when she was remodeling her kitchen and said, "I could not bear throwing this in the trash knowing that you could make something pretty and useful of it". This turned out to be one of my very faves! We built a new home two years ago and it was difficult to leave this behind. A big thanks to my husband. He is great at repurposing! He is a retired industrial electrician/technician & I could say a "professional tinkerer". (Is that not totally southern? ha! :)
I don't know what I should do. Should I sand it and leave it brown? I was thinking putting the same carpet all over because it would be safer in the winter time and not worrying about repainting it all over. So should I use different colors? What kind of paint should I use to cover it? What is your opinion? :)

I think paint in a nice accent color. seems like I've heard they put sand or something in
paint to give it a non-slip surface. carpet gets messy outside.
