Kitchen Farmhouse Light... Repainted.

Yes, you can paint a metal light...



The farmhouse light above my table began its life
as a Home Depot cheap-o special...

I married a $25.00 stainless steel utility light with 
the pole from a ceiling fan.

You can read about it here


After living with it for a while... I decided it was a
little too stainless steel-y and a little too shiny for me...

So I painted it.
Here it is still just a little bit wet because I can't 
wait for anything to dry before I take the pictures...


I used Rust-oleum Ultra Cover Metallic
in Oil Rubbed Bronze


 It comes in spray paint as well but I couldn't use the spray 
because the light was attached to the ceiling.


Here it is dry and finished and 
oh so much better than the light color!



I love the results and don't think I'm not looking around for what else I can paint oil rubbed bronze... the paint is great!

They look much older and vintage than they did before!

And bonus... it now matches my Instant Pendant Lights
