Last month, I saw this post and got really excited. My husband and I have been
looking at lights and have been wanting to replace our light fixture in our foyer and our
chandelier in our diningroom. Both these fixtures are original to the house and are the cheap
brass ones that scream 1990's! When I read how Melissa used Krylon spray paint to change
her light fixtures to look more pottery barnish...I knew it was worth a $3.57 can of spray paint
to give it a try!
This fixture from Pottery Barn is $269.00
Here's the before of our light in our foyer:
(I forgot to get a picture before my husband took it down.)
Here's how it looks after a few coats of spray paint:
It looks so much better hanging in our foyer than the brass one did!
Here's the brassy chandelier before:
(I know, I know...so ugly!)
And here it is after a little spray paint:
I'd like to get rid of the glass globes and put shades over the lights.
Such a big change for a small price.
(The funny thing is, I read somewhere the other day that brass is coming back!
Um, no thanks!)
Next up, I'm doing our outside light fixtures!
