Or if you already have a light fixture like this: Just take it down, give it a coat of paint, and reinstall it!
As you know, we have decided to stay in our home for a few more years instead of selling this year. To be honest, at least 2 of the light fixtures really didn’t match my current decor anyway.
Learn how to paint light fixtures so you can give new life to your lighting, too! I don’t know about you, but I grow tired of my decor from time to time. As you change your styles, those often need changing, too. ;) If you want to catch up, I talked about the paint and a few other changes we are making in this post and this post .
Now comes the hard part, beg your husband to help you install it (or if you get really desperate just put it up yourself – AFTER turning off the power to the whole house at the breaker box, just to be safe ) And there you have it!
A beautiful, new-to you light fixture for $4 the cost of paint. Have you used Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint before?
Long horizontal pieces get horizontal strokes; short vertical pieces that separate the panels get vertical strokes.
Keeping the intersection of these lines clean can be difficult with the wool glove, so you may want to switch to a sash brush for the second coat of glaze.

Since we now aren’t…at the moment anyway…it’s time to do something with them.
I really considered replacing them but came up with a few ideas instead. I’ll be sharing the new foyer look once I get it finished.
Paint (and a few other simple products) are your friend here. You don’t even have to take them down to update them this way!
I didn’t worry too much because we were planning to move.
I am SO thrilled to say all 3 worked out very nicely and we saved a bunch by not having to replace them. Painter’s tape and small artist style paint brushes . But just look at that fixture…would you ever guess it’s been painted?
