Well he has been brought back to his former glory, (with a little extra flair ;^).
(Do you see what I ran out of?
Besides Patience LIGHTBULBS! Hello, I of course bought the wrong size;^). This reveal brought on another surprise, can you see it? Look hard, a HUGE splotch on my ceiling where my fluorescent light box was, one project always reveals at least two more!
I first primed it with rustoleum, and this time used a colored primer, and now am IN LOVE with that product! It COVERED AMAZINGLY! I then sprayed it with the Anodized Bronze, but it looked very gray, so for the final touch I lightly swept on gold spray paint and then wiped it with a wet cloth. I <3 it!!!
I tried to wash up the white cylindrical thingies that go under the bulb, but they were yellowed from age, so I figured I would have to get more and just for the heck of it I sprayed them gold. What do you think? To much gold? I thought so at first but it’s kinda growing on me? I need a second opinion.
And of course I am the MESSIEST spray painter in the world…..
This will not come off… I could have worn gloves but this is my badge of honor, my “I am a DIY girl hand” or at least that’s what I am telling myself when people at the grocery store give me an odd look ;^).
So what do you think of the transformation? And the color on the cylindrical thingies (I should really find out their real name). I will post more pics when I have day light (and more light bulbs) but I literally just finished and wanted to show you!
(oh and everyone say a prayer that this thing will STAY UP! you never know…. *fingers crossed*).
