Kitchen spotlight update....

give a girl some spray-paint....


Remember my post here about choosing the right ceiling spotlight for my new look kitchen??
I had my heart set on some industrial style ones!

In the end I didn't go for any of them...
....because I found these from B&Q at a bargain £35!!


They had that right look with an industrial feel....
....OK, so they didn't have the right finish: That brass look wasn't quite what I'd had in mind!!
But then I remembered my own advice in my post decor and furniture on budget : "a quick makeover with some spray paint can change the look of a bargain buy to fit with your decor!!"


This instantly sprung to mind...

DOH!!

So I decided to take my own advice and set off to acquire my bargain kitchen spotlights!

MAKEOVER TIME!!

As I am going for shots of black and copper in my new look kitchen (See my full reveal on Saturday)
I set to work , armed with spray-cans, in the said colors:


I masked off the outside of the lights...


And sprayed the inside of the shades copper..
...when the copper had dried, I masked off the inside of the shades, removed the previous coverage on the outside and spray-painted the light fitting matte black!

And, voila: The transformation was complete!!
The perfect ceiling spotlights for my new look kitchen!!



I have used spray paint a lot in my kitchen makeover to tie in the details....
...never underestimate the power of spray paint: It really can transform the look of just about anything!!

Get ready for the Full reveal on Saturday!!
