It’s been almost 2 years in the making…but we finally finished my daughter’s bedroom makeover.  I think with teens (and especially girls) their bedrooms will always be a work in progress. But now that we are done-ish…I’ll be sharing the details of her bedroom projects over the next couple weeks. Today I’m starting with how we updated light fixtures & hardware with paint.

Spray Painting New Light Fixtures

I’ve been slowly updating all the boob lights (that IS the technical term, right?!) in our house.  I mean like really slowly…we’ve been here for almost 11 years. But I’m getting there…only 2 more left.  Anyway…I’ve been searching for a light fixture for my daughter’s room but didn’t want to spend a ton of money.  I found an orb chandelier in TJ Maxx for only $39 that was perfect, except for one thing…the color.  It was bronze and definitely didn’t go with the rest of the colors in her bedroom makeover. But no worries…Rustoleum Pure Gold spray paint to the rescue!

I hung the light fixture in our garage to paint and took some of the parts off to be sure I covered them well.

The trick with spray painting is to do several light coats. Umm…note to self…follow your own tips. I’m kinda impatient (who knew? haha!) so I may have sprayed the paint on a bit too heavy and wound up with a few chips during installation.  So if this happens to you…don’t worry…you can just do a bit of touch up with a tiny paintbrush.

After those touch ups…the gold light fixture looked gorgeous hanging in the space!

We wanted to add a swing arm sconce over a wall mirror.  But I couldn’t find a gold sconce that we liked at a reasonable price. Enter this bronze beauty from Amazon that we got for only $26 (lucky you…it’s even cheaper now!).  Just used my favorite spray paint again to give it a quick makeover…

And ta-da…a beautiful gold sconce! ❤  Honestly…I was a bit nervous about painting brand new light fixtures but I’m so happy we did it because they turned out great.

Updating Hardware with Spray Paint

We really liked the curtains that were in our daughter’s room and since they still worked for her new teen space we kept them. We also loved the curtain rod and rings but they were silver, so…I bet you can guess what I did to make them work.  Yup…spray painted the curtain rod and rings. I don’t have a picture of the process but let’s just say… it involved laying the parts out on newspaper & painting with that pure gold Rustoleum spray paint.  Easy peasy!

Trading a twin daybed for a queen-sized bed is what started this makeover.  You can check out the pallet headboard we made for the new Ikea bed frame we bought.  Teen girls have lots of stuff and our daughter has the smallest closet of all the kid’s rooms so she really needed extra storage.  The Brimnes queen bed frame has 4 enormous drawers but it doesn’t come with any hardware.  We added the Lansa handles to our son’s dresser previously, so we thought they’d work well on the bed storage drawers. But…yup, you guessed it again…they needed to be painted.

Adding the gold handles really put the finishing touch on these drawers.

  1. Great post! Was wondering about that color spray paint. May just work with what I have for my closet fixture! 🙂
