Goodwill got the chandelier, but I put up with these hallway lights because I never could find anything within my price range that I liked. They've just been barely screwed into the wall until I could find the perfect lights...I was even so careless that one faced up and one faced down.
When I finally found the lamp I wanted for the hallway, I had a revelation: it looks similar to the light I have.
So I turned to the great home decor tool of the ages: spray paint. I've seen many amazing transformations with the use of Oil Rubbed Bronze paint, so I tried it myself and I am hooked. And using sandpaper on that ugly brass? It's good therapy.
It took awhile and it didn't turn out perfectly - they're really not kidding when they say use short sprays...one of mine dripped ever so slightly but I dare you do try to find it. It was worth it...I love these new additions to my hallway!
