You see, the house came with all those construction grade light fixtures. The ones we have all seen a million times....shiny gold and not so much my favorite. I thought immediately about just pulling everything out and getting all new. I'm drawn to all the exposed Edison bulbs and the industrial look and getting new would make life much easier, except I started adding up all the costs of the light fixtures and wow, I could easily spend over a thousand dollars replacing everything!!
I saw this spray paint by Rust-Oleum called Forged Hammered Burnished Amber and thought, well why not try using what I already have. The only thing I had to lose was the $7 something I paid for the spray paint. Can I just make the light fixtures that are there look industrial and add those cool Edison Bulbs to them???
Here is the result. I'm going to keep it until I move everything in and see how it looks with my furnishings. I'm also going to paint the shiny gold ceiling fans and I'll let you see how that goes.
AND......It works great on shiny gold door knobs too!! I'm so excited (and a little addicted) about this spray paint!
