31 Days: The Bathroom Lights Part 2 And Bonus! A Side Table
When we last left off, the bathroom lights looked like this. I mean, they are still ugly, but at least they are clean and ready to paint.
I rounded up all the screws that also had a patina and needed some paint. I punched them into a piece of styrofoam to hold them in place.
And I used an empty cardboard box as a paint stand for the light.
I already had a can of Rust-oleum primer, so I applied two thin coats.
I then noticed that the glossy white spray paint I bought at De Hippo is a “Paint & Primer In One”, so basically I primed the hell out of these lights.
The screws look a lot less patina-y.
And I’m thinking the lights look 100 times better, I mean, at least they don’t look they would give you tetanus. I’m letting them dry for one more day and hopefully we can hang them back up tomorrow. This is unfortunate for Jeff because he took a shower in our bathroom last night in the dark accompanied by a Hello Kitty nightlight and a lit candle.
After painting, I went and picked up a side table I found on Craigslist for my rugless front room for $15.
I’m not going to lie, the projects are starting to
kill me run together. Obviously.
For 31 days, I’m tackling the Hot Mess. Read all about it here.
