Tired of your less that exiting pendant over the kitchen table? Try painting it. If you like the aged look of these two top lamps, you need to give the surface several coats of paint, and wipe or brush some of the top layer(s) off, in order to let the lower layers shine through, and get the right aged look. The two bottom pics are from Ikea - livet hemma. You can read all about how they spray painted their aluminum pendants here (in Swedish).
