Are you ready to learn how to spray paint your light fixtures? My kitchen light fixture needed to get out of the 80s y’all. So I broke out some spray paint on it over the long weekend. Let’s get started!
I have used this same painting method on some fixtures in my bathroom over a year ago. So I know the method works plus it stays put and looks great for the long haul. First I headed to Walmart for my light bulbs and spray paint. Then on with my makeover! First we took down the old fixture. Just for y’all I am going to keep it real. It was NASTY! Ick…

Next you will need to dismantle your fixture and clean each piece really well.
Now comes the fun part…okay it is the not so fun part but it is necessary. Sand each are very, very well. Then wash the entire fixture really well again.
When you are sick of sanding and washing, do it some more. 🙂 That part is important so take your time. Then mask off any areas you do not want painted.
Spray your entire fixture with at least two coats. Then let it dry and cure as long as possible. Yes it is dry to touch quickly but the paint has not fully cured and hardened. I would recommend at least over night…longer if you can wait. Then hang it back up and ooooh and aaaaah over your great new finish.
We shortened the chain and wire when hanging it back up. Then I made a chain cover. This is literally a scrap of fabric and some hot glue. No one is going to be climbing up there to critique your workmanship. Make it easy and simple.
I love that darker splash on the ceiling. Perfect for our home. I wish I had a couple of weeks to change up every fixture in our home. For now, it will be baby steps….
Don’t be afraid! You can do this! Just follow these step by step instructions on how to spray paint your light fixtures!
I am off to enjoy my new light fixture! Yes I have so many more in my home to do. But I can do this!! Y’all be sure to bookmark this tutorial on how to spray paint your light fixtures! You will use it over and over again!
