Hey, thanks for the kind words. You know with all these projects we do it gets down to making a solid & realistic plan.
The shades, I can't believe how much time I "Invested" trying to find shades that would have enough air flow for the bulbs, look like they belong in the room and didn't cost more that the Tank & the stand.
The thing I learned pretty fast is if I liked it...it was over $100
IKEA also had an aluminum pendant that was modern looking and would have looked good if I would have rattle canned it white. But, it's december in ChicagoLand and spray paint season is over. I'm sue I'll eventually swap them out.
