I purchased, on-line, a bundle of old lights. They all looked pretty bad. Included was a pair of 2-bulb pendants. When I come across fixtures in this condition I feel like I have come across a box of puppies, sick and sad looking, and my reaction is: Must Save! MUST SAVE!
After some artful restoration, the 2-bulb pendants did not look too bad! The brass was a bit mottled under the old paint but I kinda liked this, and was loath to polish the brass to Like New perfection. I did repaint the center as this looked like it had the measles!
Lovely. Right? The new cloth wiring is the perfect final touch. The original chains were corroded, but the new chain exactly matches in terms of scale and shape. No cheap Home Depot chain on my babies!
