Many landlords will allow you to change out light fixtures as long as you keep the original fixtures and change them back out when you move. I love unusual light fixtures especially those that give you a lot of bang for your buck.

A simple coat of spray paint on a thrift store or yard sale light fixture is often just the upgrade that you need. Below are three of my favorite DIY pendant lights that are perfect for small spaces.

1.  Anthropologie Inspired Pendant Light |  2.  Paint Stick Pendant Light

  1. Ever since my husband and I made a play kitchen for our nieces I’m eager to try another furniture repurpose. The laundry station is inspiring, I’m thinking something like that would work well for my sons toys. Thanks for sharing this Myra! I love it!

  2. Can you tell us how you go about repainting a piece? Do you strip it first? Sand it? Or just paint right over the old finish? I’ve always been hesitant to buy furniture that I could refinish because I didn’t want to deal with the chemical agents.
