Spray Painting Outdoor Lights

9,435 Views
Every day I would walk up to our front door and be welcomed by ugly, rust-colored outdoor lights. Ugh! That's not what I want to welcome me or my guests home! Instead of replacing the lights I decided to update them with a $4 can of spray paint in just a couple of minutes. No need to even take down the lights. It's a huge transformation to our exterior lights that I love!
Oh, and you're going to want to look at all these pictures carefully. There is a certain photo bomber peeking through the glass panes! You're not going to want to miss that adorableness!
Time: 10 Minutes Cost: $4 Difficulty: Easy

    Great post! I had planned on purchasing new lighting but not until I had the funds. I am definitely going to try this out.

      @Jessica L It's definitely worth a try! If you don't like it, all you spent was your time and $4 on spray paint! Hope it goes well!

      @Code One Electric Thank you! I was so pleased with the results. I always liked the shape but thought they lacked some impact. The black definitely makes them stand out (and look new)!

      @Alexandra Arena haha! Right?! I had no idea he was doing that until he opened the door and told me. They turned out to be my favorites! Too funny!
