Then I hit it with a few coats of Valspar Navy Satin paint. I debated between the navy and using my trusty ORB (to mimic the inspiration piece), but I just couldn’t get the idea of a sleek navy pendant light out of my head.

I threaded the lamp kit into place and plugged it in. Success!
The pendant even looks snazzy when the light is off.
