Recently, a customer came into the shop looking for advice about an outdated light fixture in her kitchen. She had updated the space to achieve a more natural feel, and the look of the gold fixture against her beautiful black granite countertops didn’t match the color scheme of the space.
Right away we knew the solution! Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint (in oil rubbed bronze) would totally change the look of the light and give it a more modern and industrial feel!
Using painter’s tape, we covered the electrical components of the fixture, then proceeded to spray light coats of the paint. By doing several light layers we prevent the paint from dripping and looking uneven.
We finished the lamp by using small bits of Annie Sloan Gilding Wax. Just remember a little goes a long way with the gilding wax. Find sections of your piece to highlight, then apply the wax where you want with a finger or small brush, and rub it in with a paper towel.
We loved how the Annie Sloan Gilding Wax reflected the light off of the Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint! Our customer was thrilled and we are now off to find another project.
