and then i found this

So, remember I was bemoaning the fact that my client's industrial pendant sconces were wayyyyy out of stock? It's a familiar sob story for anyone who has ever ordered anything, but frustrating nonetheless!

Well, I've been hunting for a replacement and think I have found a good one. Thanks to all of you for commiserating, and more importantly for weighing in and pointing me in a few helpful directions!


This is perhaps the closest to what I had in mind. I like the pendant look that is just like what I was after, and I love that it has a dimmer swtich. This also makes me happy because it's a plug-in, like the original choice, so we can save money by skipping the electrician on install.


But...I also fell in love with this antiqued silver glass pendant from the Foundary for $30. Yes, $30! Incredible! But we could not make a decision quickly enough and it's already SOLD OUT. Boo. I should have just bought them! I'm sure I would have used them if my client didn't, but that's a slippery slope, my friends! Anyway, I may just keep checking back in the hopes that some orders get cancelled and they magically restock ;-) What would you do?

Ugh - hard decision. Maybe call Foundary to see if they'll be restocking in the near future?? But, I have to say the second one is a beauty.....

They are both awesome, and I can only imagine how very steep that slippery slope can be! Fingers crossed that they're back in stock soon.

I so know this feeling. They are both beautiful though.

Glad you like the Pottery Barn one I suggested and that I have in my guest room! I do love the 2nd one though, too! Hope you find just what you want at the end of the day! :) Kelly

I'd get a clear shade the shape of the one you like, grab some krylon mirroring spray (or a good quality silver paint) and use some sort of resist method to paint the inside to produce that wonderful marbled/mirror effect. I've had some luck using dish soap + water in a spray bottle to spritz surfaces before spraying. Once spraying, you gently dab off the excess paint and you should (should!) see nothing where the soap solution was. Depending on how much you apply, you can get tiny dots of reveal or large splotches. Just a thought. The THIRTY bucks made me choke. I don't think I could do it!
