Dining Room Lighting Makeover

This weeks makeover project was my dining room light fixture. It was an all out brass party in the middle of our school area and it just didn't fit in anymore. Here is a before shot.

It didn't take very much effort for this redo. First a trip to the hardware for Rustoleum's Camouflage non-reflective brown spray paint. Next we removed the glass and lightbulbs and taped the ceiling. After about 15 minutes, we had new lighting!! YES!!
Ready for the result?

Much better, don't you think?


  1. Much better! Great job!! Amazing what a can of spray paint can do!!


  2. Love it! Lisa, we seem to have the same taste. I had the same green color in our house in NC. ;-)

  3. Jen, that is so neat. I wish we were closer so we could visit.

  4. Lisa,
    I love this! So simple and such a huge change. Sheri has inspired me to being to make some changes at home. I hope to begin soon and I'll be posting when I do.

    I love your blog template-it's pretty and just right-not too much fru-fru to load up like some!

    Thanks for entering my giveaway!


  5. Lisa,
    Thank you for your compliments. Sheri has really inspired me to do some of the things I have been putting off.

    Love your blog, too and thanks for offering the giveaway.


  6. Lisa, Have you tried this with an outdoor fixture? Thanks for sharing.

    Like the autumn decor here on your blog. And btw, I have that if not a similar green in my kitchen walls. :)

  7. Meredith,
    Great minds think alike! :)

    And yes, I have painted my outdoor fixtures. Instead of buying new outdoor lighting the last time we painted, we took the old brassy fixtures apart and spray painted them black. Worked fine and they still look great. It has been about 3 years since we painted, too. :)


Thank you for taking time to comment.
