Last year I looked at all our fixtures and realized that they were all brass! While that was popular when we built the house, it certainly looked dated now. I knew I didn’t want to pay for 4 new fans and multiple lights.
I decided spray paint was the answer! I bought hammered black so it would look like vintage iron, or something like that. Tim took them down, took them apart, and I sprayed everything that was metal.
I decided I didn’t want clear shades, so I bought a can of frost for the glass. I also turned over the blades of the fan to a different color. I love the new look! I posted them of Facebook, and my son away at college thought we had bought all new ones!
