Updating Light Fixtures

All you need is a little spray paint! Both of these light fixtures were an ugly brass color that looks so dated. I wish I had before pictures, but trust me, they were a very shiny brass! All I did was two quick coats of black spray paint (no sanding, no primer) and there you go! Total time (not counting drying time) 30 minutes!


  1. thats a great idea! The first thing I did when we moved in was replace ALMOST all of the light fixtures. It makes such a difference. I never thought of spray painting them tho!

  2. What a difference spray paint makes. They look great.

  3. Spray Paint makes my heart happy! :) Very nice!

  4. looks great. i am thinking of spraying out our doorknobs but wonder how well they would wear

  5. That second one is darling! I just sprayed a brass fixture the other day too - what a difference :D

  6. Oh what a bit of spray paint can do! Looks great.

  7. That works great. I've done a few myself with spray and it really does change the look.

  8. I am wanting to do some projects with a mixture of paints to do some updating.
    This is my first time to your blog. I also started a new KNOCK OFF KNOCK OUT party and I bet you have some things to put in the party-it's every Monday. I would love to have you submit this idea next Monday. I hope you come over and become a follower and subscribe and I will do the same.

    minimum what can be dangerous. If you incorporate honey
    into your weight loss plan, you can control your cravings,
    especially for sugar. The laser is applied for about 20 minutes to the fatty areas of the body, after which the
