Updating Outdated Lighting

The light figures in our house are either vintage (and beautiful) or straight from the 90’s (and far less beautiful). While we search for the lights we want to buy to replace what we currently have, I needed to do something to make the fixtures a little better. Is it just me or once you see something you don’t like, you cant unsee it?!??

I took the silver pieces of the light fixtures off to spray paint. I didn’t really think through the final look I wanted and picked up a can of White Rustoleum Spray Paint. Once I sprayed on a few coats, the paint started to crackle (not the texture I was going for). So I sanded it down, went back to Home Depot and picked up the Behr Chalk Spray Paint.

The Chalk Spray Paint gives a nice matte look. A great, cheap (under $10) fix to update a light fixture.
