I’m back with more details on our upstairs renovation! After removing the doors, trim and carpet, trimming out the attic access and painting the walls and ceilings, it was time to put new lights up in the hall. It’s a long hall and the lights upstairs were dim and SOO ugly. Here’s a picture of the light before I painted the walls and ceilings.
I knew I wanted some kind of black farm-housey light at the end of each side of the hall. I searched everywhere and found all kinds of lights I liked, but man… they are expensive!
I finally found these at Lowes and of course, they don’t come in black. But the price was right @ $39.99 each, so I bought them anyway. Don’t get me wrong, I like them in nickel as well, but my heart was set on black.
That’s what spray paint is for, right?
I whipped out my new HomeRight Small Spray Shelter to make sure spray paint didn’t end up all over my garage and to protect my lights from leaves and dirt whipping around in the wind.
I set up my light and stuffed a paper-towel in the light socket to protect it from spray paint.
I scuffed up the finish a little with a sanding block, then put two coats of black primer on the light.
Here’s one before primer and one after primer. I love it already!
Next, I used Rustoleum Satin Black Paint & Primer spray paint. This is my favorite paint. It goes on so smooth and honestly gives it a factory-like finish.
This shelter was awesome! The best part was set up and clean up, it’s so easy. It’s just a little pop-up shelter, so no rods to put in, or parts to snap together. I think next time, I’ll make some kind of simple revolving stand so I can turn my item while painting it (fancy, right?!). When you’re done, you just twist it back up and put it back in it’s nifty bag!
Last, once my lights were dry, I had the hubs hang them in the hall.
These little guys put out so much light!
I may turn them so that they are parallel with the wall and not angled, but I’m going to wait until I get my doors installed to make that decision.
This renovation is coming along, slowly…but surely. Next up, I’ll be installing doors upstairs. I already purchased them and have them painted, but honestly… I’m a little nervous about installing. I’ve never done it ALL by myself, so we shall see!
Let’s give something away… what do you think?!
