Just Sprayin'...

This is just a quickie to remind you all that paint and lightbulbs
 make "meh"light fixtures into "A-mehn" fixtures.

My electricians are here and fixtures are going up quick.
This is my new laundry room fixture.

I'm sure you've seen this Home Depot fixture before.
I picked it up back in the beginning of summer because I liked the lines and thought it had potential.
 It used to look like this...
fine, good bones, but "meh". 
One coat of Rustoleum Copper Metallic Paint and one coat of Rustoleum Tomato Red.
(the Tomato covered poorly over the brown without a primer,
so I put a coat of Copper on first, let it dry and then liberally applied some Tomato red 
and BAM, tomato soup glossy perfection! A little of the Copper sparkles shines through.)

Just take out the glass and tape over the sockets...

add some round chandelier bulbs to give it a more mod look.
done. 
My laundry room currently looks like this...

A storehouse for boatloads of wallpaper for a project I am currently working on.
But hey, plumbers come next...
and a light is progress in my book!
