upgrading a $9.99 light fixture

I had an idea, and we'll see if it pans out :)
It started with these VERY basic flush mount lights ( $9.99 at home depot )

spray with bronze spray paint to update the basic white, keep the brass screws, and here's the update.. next, I'll show you where they are going..

Such a great idea, Sarah... and easy too!

p.s. I am having an Anthropologie giveaway if it interests you! xo

Great idea, I'm all about re-purposing light fixtures, in fact I just absconded with a brash chandelier that was in someone's trash. I have many ideas for this light fixture. Can't wait to see where yours is going.

Isn't spray paint the best?

Thank you for confirming what I have suspected I can do to all of the contractor flush mount lights in our hallways. My husband, however, will no thank you.
