Spray Painting to Update and Refresh Lighting

I have used spray paint to refresh and update many things. Here are a few of the things I used them on. The first couple here are out door coach lights. The first one I used Rust-oleum Satin Black. The next one I used was a Rust-oleum, Metallic Aged Bronze.


After I take down the lights the first thing I do is unscrew the little nuts and take the glass out.
Second, I wash the light fixture and the glass well with Shaklee’s Basic H.
Third, I use a metal primer, shown below.
Finally, I spray it the color that I want, and you have a new looking and updated light fixture.
These are low voltage Malibu lights that were new but I didn’t think the color went well with the house and the coach lights, so I primed and sprayed these as well.

I really like the way out door lighting adds to the house’s appearance and security.
I like everything to match so I also sprayed the house numbers. DSCI0035DSCI0037

Have you ever spray painted outdoor lighting?

  2. I just love how these turned out. The numbers look great, too! We bought some lights at a garage sale that were still in the box but have been sitting for a long time in a shed. I want to paint them and see that it will work just fine! I am having a giveaway if you would like to enter!!!

  3. What a great look! I'm going to be re-doing my light fixtures this week, so I love seeing what others are doing, too! Thanks for sharing!! I'm hopping over from Humble Homemaking. I'm happy to meet another new blogger, too!
