You'll see why in a second...hang tight. And you'll also need a Dremel for this project. I promise you it's not as scary as it sounds. Do not fear the Dremel. It is so easy to use and made this project a breeze. Purchasing a Dremel is so much less expensive than purchasing two new pendants and nagging my husband to install them (or waiting patiently for my dad to help).
I found lamp shades at Lowes for $12 and I loved their cone like shape. The gold lining is so pretty. Whatever lamp shade you choose should have this as the fitting. I'm sure there is a professional word for this fitting but I have no clue what it is.
