Updating light fixtures with spray paint

What’s that quote from about how long you can make it without a rationalization? Okay, so we took this down when we painted the wall, and I hauled it down the garage (because it won’t stop raining lately), scrubbed it down, and painted it with Rustoleum’s Champagne Mist.

If you tuned into my blog last week, you’ll know that we’re working on a HUGE project right now: turning our old garage house into a guest house! We don’t want to spend a huge amount of money on this renovation, so I’m busting out all of my favourite DIY tricks. It’s so easy to use, and it can make a huge impact on a decor item.

One of my favourite ways to update almost anything on a budget? This week, I used it to quickly and inexpensively update the hardware and light fixtures in our guest house!

I decided to use an antique brass color (Rustoleum Spray Paint) rather than going with a true oiled bronze.

I really didn’t want the fixtures to be too dark and I also wanted them to still have a reflective quality.
