Waging a War Against the Brass

Yup, you heard me right. I've lived in this house for over a year and a half now, and finally decided that it's time for the horrid, brassy light fixtures in our house to go down one by one. First up, I set my sights on the one hanging above our dining room table.

I wish I had an "after" pic to show you right this very moment, but sadly the "new" (to us) light fixture that we bought from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore is in the midst of a makeover.

Have you ever had a can of spraypaint literally die on you mid-project? That's what happened last week as I was just about to put the finishing touches on this baby. It was very anti-climatic.

But, instead of freaking out, I gave the spraypaint manufacturer a call and explained the situation. After the rep was satisfied that I was not just some idiot who didn't know you're supposed to take the cap off, shake the bottle, and press the nozzle to release the paint, they sent a brand-spanking-new bottle o' paint my way so hopefully I will have some results for you tomorrow!

And as a side note- the spray paint I used was Krylon. I have to say that i was really pleased with their customer service. I have never spray paint go bad before, but they handled the situation really well! Go Krylon! (They didn't endorse me for this, it's just the plain old truth!).


  1. Krylon is AMAZING! They really do have fantabulous customer service. I tease them to make cans bigger so I can paint everything in sight =)

    can't wait to see what the "after" shot looks like!! ee!!

  2. You are one brave woman! I would've bugged John til he did it all for me. LOL

  3. Jenn- cool! It's so nice to know that there are companies out there that really do have their consumers in mind. =)

    Kristi- ah, well, you know me! I never shy away from a challenge!
