Exterior Lights Revamp

Before we get the keys to our house next week, I decided to tackle some of the outside projects.  Lots of weeding, spraying and mulch.  The weeds are out of control.  There has been no mulch put down in 3 years.  It was pretty ugly.  Our exterior lights were also looking pretty sad.  They started out a dark brown, and over the years had faded to an ugly orange.  I decided that instead of buying new lights, I would break out the oil rubbed bronze spray paint!

I carefully taped off the area around all of the light fixtures so I wouldn't get over spray on the house.  I wiped off the fixtures with a damp paper towel and then rubbed them dry.  Then I sprayed them lightly with Rustoleum "Oil Rubbed Bronze".  I repeated the process until the lights had a nice even coat.  I think they turned out pretty great.  I will let you know how they hold up.  But, for now, they are considered done : )... Don't mind the filthy house... that is another project on the to-do list!!
