Last week, while Josh was hard at work on the mudroom/nook/kitchen reno (or munoki??) I took advantage of the sunny weather and crossed off a few projects from my outdoor to-do list. I didn't manage to fully complete them all (the house is just partially painted) but I did update our front porch light.
The light was a dirty white sconce that had seen better days. It's (barely) visible here in this listing photo of our home.
The lamp wasn't awful, so rather than replacing it with a brand new fixture I decided to show it a little love and give it a fresh coat of paint. I took the lamp apart, which required unscrewing the bottom plate and sliding each glass pane out. Then I scraped off all the chipping paint.
I sprayed the lamp with three coats of Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and cleaned off each glass plate. Then I put everything back together and Josh rewired it.
I love how a fresh color or coat of paint can give a seen-better-days piece new life. So what about you guys? Any quick projects you're tackling?
