Brass Lanterns......with Spray Paint!

I love fancying up my outdoor space but have a limited budget. Less than $4.00 gave me an awesome brass lantern look for four of my tired and rusty outdoor lanterns. So easy and simple with less than half a can of spray paint.
Yes....they were this gross.
Can you believe the before? Have some pieces that could use this transformation?
Fun pop of fancy!

    Good job! I repaint all I can every year and try to buy metal all I can, live and learn. :-)

    I have that exact Lantern and it looks just as bad as yours did, if not a wee bit worse. I am so doing this to it - today!! Thanks so much for pointing out the obvious! Love the way it came out.
