Updating brass fixtures

But I did want to include photos of them for inspiration along with the white chalk painted shade tutorial I shared today.How to paint light fixtures…who knew it was this easy…budget friendly, too.When your eye roams around the room there needs to be enough distance between the 2 so that they are not in the same visual sight line.If they are directly next to each other it will be clear as day that they are different.you can have a white toilet AS LONG AS it is not DIRECTLY next to your tub (as in between 12-24″).

These almond/bone coloured subway style tiles are a great way to modernize an almond tub as they are a few tones darker than almond and add some visual depth to the space.

I share a lot of the things I’m doing, in the moment, over there in the “stories”. I’ve painted every single wall in this house as least 4-5 times ( ) but have never painted the ceilings. ;) I’m hoping that by painting all the ceilings down stairs, it will really brighten up the spaces. ;) I did these a little differently than I did the chandelier. Plus, the aged feel is also a good match for my decor. ;) And no, I did not have to remove these from the ceiling either. I recently repainted the foyer in my favorite, SW Sea Salt and it totally changed the feel of the entry. I used this chalk style paint mixed with a tiny bit of water to make it a bit more fluid. Simply apply the paint either long way around the shade or short, up and down strokes, making your way around the shade. Paint one coat and hold it up to a light to see if you have brush strokes, or any missed spots.

Ugh And I honestly don’t think they’ve been painted by anyone in 40 years. Just to give you a clue as to how dark and dingy they were….. This finish is amazing…the only one that didn’t get created with PAINT! (same ones I put on the chandelier) Not bad, but that bronze is not really matching my style or colors in here anymore. I’ll be sharing this “faux” patina tutorial soon, too. Do make sure your paint is not too thick and try to apply evenly. If you do, or if you want a bit more color, apply a second coat.

Paint (and a few other simple products) are your friend here. You don’t even have to take them down to update them this way!

I didn’t worry too much because we were planning to move.
