I managed to get a project done the week before I started working. Here’s another fairly ugly, standard builder’s brass light fixture in the breakfast area. Since it’s not in the budget to replace it anytime soon, I figured I might as well bronze it. I got this project finished the week before I went back to work. It was nice to get that out of the way.
So, I took it down, went outside & sprayed it all over with white primer.
I missed taking a pic of the black spray, but next came a coat of Satin spray paint in black, to cover all the white primer. Tape off electrical parts first. Beginning coat of the Burnt Sienna & Bronze craft paints.
Here they are all ready to spread on with the damp sea sponge. You just daub & then wipe off the excess with an old rag.
And, here’s the finished project! I think it looks SO much better & adds to the touches of black I have in the kitchen. And, it was just the cost of a can of spray paint! How’s that for cheap & easy? I’d still like to do the diningroom fixture too, but my hubby wants me to leave it alone. So, I pick my battles…I told him I’ll leave it for now, but hehhh-hehhh, I’ll deal with it later, either with a new fixture eventually or painting it. You know we eventually win!
Now, get out there & paint some brass for me! This is really an easy way to update those old fixtures if you really don’t want to buy new ones right away.
