Updating brass light fixtures - Malysia redtb

It was the style I guess when the house was built in the early 90’s. We’ve lived in this house for over a year and every.I wake up and go in to my bathroom, I think to myself, “I really need to do something with that light.” I hate it, hate it, hate it!!!

And plus, being able to up-cycle makes me feel good knowing I’m doing my part to keep this stuff out of the landfills. Apparently the maid forgot to dust in areas above her 5’4″ reach {maid=moi …ahem} So, I cleaned it with a cleaner I had on hand What a difference with a little wipe down … I taped up the light bulb thing-a-mabobs so no paint would get in there.Doesn’t have to be perfect {you don’t see them anyway, really} Then I spray painted the sucker.Making sure to spray evenly to ensure minimal drip factor.I just used a Flat Brown spray paint, no need for a heat resistant paint as it doesn’t get hot and it’s not directly exposed to enough heat to do anything.I let it dry for a bit and brought it inside for some ‘artistic embellishment’. I wanted a random look to it so I ‘dry brushed’ the metallic paint on it.

So, you dip your brush in the paint and paint a few strokes on to a paper towel just to get that initial ‘glob’ of paint off.

This is the end result: Now, to the bathroom: I’ve been painting the bathroom and took the opportunity to finish the painting while the fixture was down. Totally NOT hard to do and what a DIFFERENCE it makes to a room!Just think, if you have chrome/brushed nickel as a theme in your home, you can spray paint any ugly brass fixtures the same to go along with the rest of the house.The best part is that it doesn’t cost much at all and you can have it done in less than a hour!note:: I would normally prime the piece to ensure extra adherence, however, I figured that since it won’t be touched at all so there wouldn’t be any risk to having the paint come off {and plus, I didn’t have any in my paint stash …
