Light fixture updating
My second favorite is the other clear glass one with the bubbles in it, but that was John’s least favorite so it’s a no-go.
The small frosted one is a bit too small and it’s not as contemporary as I’d like, and the big frosted globe is a little TOO big.
I’ve missed spending time creating, and I’ve missed sharing my DIY adventures with you over the past several weeks while we’ve been in moving/transitioning/settling mode. Since we’re at my parents’ river house for the next couple of months, I’ll be taking on a few projects around here.
I finished a simple one this weekend that I’m pretty pumped to show you since it made a huge difference in the look of our bedroom - at least in my humble opinion!
The coat hanger trick is a life saver when it comes to painting something like this!
Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference in a home!
Whether you live in an apartment or own a house, we’ve all had that moment where we realize it’s time to switch things up.
Spray painting isn’t rocket science by any means, but I thought I’d share my process since this is my first time taking down a hard-wired light fixture, painting it, and putting it back up. I started this project by turning off the electricity to the room where I was working so I could take down the fixture without electrocuting myself :). For the parts that I couldn't remove, but didn't want to paint (the electrical wires and the "candles" where the light bulbs screw in), I covered with newspaper and painter's tape.
It's an easy way to protect them from the inevitable overspray.
