A true story....

Once upon a time there was a dated, sad, old light that was in need of a makeover



Then a new family found her for sale through the classifieds, forked over $5 dollars for her and brought her home. With a vision, a tutorial, a can of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, and one hard working husband, she was transformed....



And now she is a happy Pottery Barn knock-off hanging happily where once lived some lovely track lights over our stairway. And she lived happily ever after.

Before



After







The End!

R U Serious? I am so doing that. I already have the sad, dated light (it's hanging in my foyer). I'll just need to call you to get the scoop on materials.

I was just telling Mom that I wanted to replace it - she mentioned painting it but I will be doing what you did. Great Job!

The light transformation turned out amazing! Great job, Brett! You can now mark that off your honey-do list. Now on to the railings and the wood floor. Your home is looking great!
