Give Your Outdoor Lighting A Fresh Update

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?

  1. What a nice idea. I'm already thinking I should give these outdoor lighting a try.
