New Light Fixture!

(Bye bye, brass!)

I gave you guys a sneek peak at this new light fixture a couple of posts ago, but wanted to share the final product, with pictures taken in daylight, with you too!

Here's what the fixture looked like when we brought it home from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore (love that place!). It looks like it's from the 70's, with that icky old, crackly brass finish.

But, once we took apart the metal pieces and spray painted them with Krylon's Satin Nickel spray paint, they really started to shine.

In the evening, they give off a nice, soft glow. It's the perfect amount of light!

So there it is. How about you? What have you spray-painted lately?

I linked up to some fabulous places here:

  1. They look wonderful! I love the Restore too, there is one about a mile from my house, way too close!

  2. That was the perrrrrfect color to paint it to completely snazz it up! Gorgeous!!!!!!

    Jenn- Thanks! I'm super happy with the color choice too!

  4. Great transformation. I might steal the idea to change out an ugly ceiling fan!

  5. Good idea Cindy! I've got my eyes set on an ugly fan in our room too, thinking it needs to go sooner than later! =)
