Updating light fixtures with spray paint
Ditto, the 1/3 can of Graphite Chalk Paint that was left from a chair that I painted last fall.
I'm also not spending money to replace the mirror..light bar..the toilet tissue holder...because let's face it, the chances that they'd survive Phase 2 of the renovation in one piece and that I would be able to actually locate all of the parts when it came time to re-install them.....let's not kid ourselves... I'm still looking for the charger for my electric toothbrush...it's been a month.
Behold, the power of spray paint and chalk paint to transform old oak and brass bathroom fixtures into cool, industrial fixtures with just the right amount of vintage flair for a French Farm House.
So I did a few updates soon after moving in: I took out the cheapy bushes that were about two inches tall and replaced them with azeleas and lillies, then added landscaping lights and bricks, and installed window boxes. :) I also replaced our too small for the scale of our house and they were practically blinding us with their brassy-ness. So because I still love the size and design of the lights, I had a little idea in my noggin. If you can’t find it there, you can’t find it anywhere.I'm merely fixing what's here so that I can direct our guests to to this bathroom without having to make excuses.... So, after a single afternoon spent with spray paint and chalk paint..a quick trip to the Home Depot for some .65 replacement globes, vintage style light bulbs, and new knobs for the vanity (as well as two coats of paint on the ceiling, walls and trim, and a few hours with gloves, bleach and cleanser) my 1970's oak and brass bathroom fixtures now look like this: I'm delighted because this bathroom update cost under and I have a bathroom that I'm not afraid to show to my guests.
