I, like many of you like to change things up. Couldn't find teal/ torquoise glass shade replacements for my pendant lights. Many places carried the entire light fixture, but couldn't purchase just the teal glass pendant shades. So here's what I did.

Here's the few items that are needed. Glass shade, spray paint, rubber bands.

Before starting, I cleaned each glass shade with rubbing alcohol. ( I needed 3 glass shades for my light fixture)

With no rhyme or reason, I placed the rubber bands onto the glass shade. Make sure the rubber bands lay flat and are not twisted!

Lightly sprayed the frosted teal spray paint. Waited for it to dry and then gave it a second coat.

After the 2 coats of frosted spray paint were completely dry, I easily took off the rubber bands. (See the lines that were left?)

I then gave it two coats of clear gloss spray paint.

Here's the glass pendant shades completed and hung in my kitchen.

Up close to see how it looks!
