Spray painting light fixtures

My house was built in 1971. It has undergone some extensive remodeling from previous owners, as well as work we have done in the last 7 years. There is one thing though, that apparently no one has felt the need to upgrade, since somewhere around 1987: the light fixtures. They are truly hideous. The one in our dining room was a particularly horrid eyesore as you can see.

 

This is the same light, before and after. A bit hard to believe it was SO ugly!

About lisser

My name is Alyssa. I live with my husband and 2 young boys on our farm in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. I have been in the planning to launch a small scale farm from our acreage for the last 2 years. Much to my excitement 2010 brings the start of my dream to fruition. We are starting small, but will continue to grow as a valuable local food source in our community. We are an unschooling, attachment parenting family, with a love for the outdoors, and a passion for sustainable farming. I am a stay (and now work) at home mom. I enjoy reading, sewing, cooking/baking, canning and photography.
