At first I thought (and had even started) I would spray paint a fixture I already had. The problem was I kept putting off the project. I realized I was doing this because I really didn't like the fixture in the first place and just painting it wasn't going to help. I decided I needed to buy something. I didn't have a big budget for this (under $100) so I had to do some looking, but I finally found something I liked on Amazon.
Let me remind you what the old fixture looked like. Beautiful, right?
And then here is the new fixture. It just is so much more modern and makes the whole room feel less dated. Plus, I just like it. And now we can have the light on while eating dinner without needing sunglasses.
I am currently working on my office, but then my next project will be the kitchen. This is a project that keeps getting put off just because it will be SO BIG. I plan on painting all my cabinets white and then adding oil rubbed bronze hardware to them to match the light fixture. When it's done, I know I will love it, but I have A LOT of cabinets so it will be a lot of painting.
Wish me luck!
