Farmhouse Pendant Lighting
When we bought our house, the kitchen had been somewhat updated. One of the additions to the kitchen was the Pendant Light Strip above the breakfast bar. Although it wasn't horrible, it's never really been my favorite thing.
But, when you live in a house with a small tribe (8 kids, 1 husband, 2 dogs @perfectlydestressed), things like this aren't a priority.
You learn to deal.
And if necessary, to disguise them until the time comes you can fix it.
While at Hobby Lobby, I came across these pendant light covers on clearance and I *think* I may have squealed! $2 and change?! I can definitely do that! I guess good things do come to those who wait?! Seriously though, usually I am entirely too impatient to see if this holds true!
These pendants were made to go on the corded light swags you see all over Pinterest right now so I knew I would have to modify them a bit.
Using metal pliers, I broke off the 3 metal strips and circle in the middle of each pendant. This was very simple and only took a few minutes.

Using the hardware from the glass shades I removed, I attached the new metal shades to the light cords.
In less than 15 minutes I updated my lights for under $9!
