Updating globe lights

This was a really inexpensive way to update the existing fixture to make it look more modern and updated without having to buy a new one! I am seriously in love with the industrial look the white copper gave the light fixture.

After reading the safety instructions, I sprayed the fixture with 2-3 coats of Krylon Premium Metallic spray paint in White Copper. It turned out to be the perfect metallic for this light fixture!

I allowed the fixture to dry for 2 days and we reinstalled it over the dining room table.

The spun socket adds an extra detail in the transition from clear glass shade to bulb.

Instead of picking out an entire new fixture, we could try just replacing the globes!
