This DIY mercury glass pendant is the very first project Tricia shared on her new blog Simplicity in the South. She had been wanting to try out Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint, and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. With a few coats of the paint, Tricia made an inexpensive shade from Lowes look like the $400 one she’d been drooling over!
Tricia’s inspiration came from the Regina Andrew Hanging Antique Glass Pendant available from Candelabra.

We just bought a house that was built in '85. The living room has 2 chandeliers that look exactly like this:
I don't want to spend $400-$800 for new lighting, so I was thinking of spray painting it black. I have been at a loss on what to do with the horrible looking glass panels. I'm considering trying the mercury glass effect but I am a little worried it will block a lot of light from the bulbs and make the room too dark. These are the main 2 sources of light in our room, and not just accent lighting. After you did this did you notice it blocked a lot of the light out?
