In our last post, we revealed our plans to weld and spray paint this brass pendant we found:
People kinda freaked. Brass is not our thang, so we thought it was no big deal to take some spray paint to it. Apparently we struck a nerve with brass lovers, both in blog and in face-to-face comments.
Well, good news: the pendant is most definitely NOT solid brass! It’s also not copper. The brassy color is either a paint or patina. A commenter suggested it might be copper because of the way it’s gone green, but we polished down a section and it’s definitely not copper. We’re not entirely sure what it is — aluminum? steel? iron? — but we’re definitely going to follow through with our plans to spray paint that sucker. First we have to schlep it back to Brooklyn so Bradley can weld it.
We’re hoping to get it completely finished and ready to hang by next Saturday. In the meantime, we’ll be back with updates on our dining room reno. Stay tuned!
