So y’all remember our cute little shed that I shared last month?
Well, today I want to share with you how I spray painted some outdoor lights to add a little charm to the shed.
Since the paint on our shed is a black color, darker lights (like Oil rubbed bronze or black,) would not show up very well.
I looked for gold outdoor lighting online to see what I could find, and all of the styles that stood out to me where well over $100 each or more. I didn’t have that kind of money to spend on shed lights, so I found a cheaper option in the style that I liked, (but not the color,) and decided to spray paint them gold.
These are the lights I found for only $39 each.
I thought this style would look good on our shed, so I decided to paint them with Krylon’s All-in-One Fusion paint in “metallic gold.” This color is a muted gold, not brassy.
The cool thing about Krylon’s All-in-One fusion paint is that it is a primer and paint in one and holds up well outdoors.
I also wanted to add some hardware to the shed doors, but all I had was these brassy gold handles, and they didn’t match my newly painted lights.
So I gave them a fresh coat of spray paint with the same Krylon’s All-in-One Metallic Gold spray paint. It took me literally minutes to give my lights and hardware and new, matching look.
Here is a video I took on my phone of the whole process…
I love the way my lights and hardware look on our new shed!
The metallic gold paint was just enough to help the lighting and hardware stand out against the dark paint.
And I was able to get a one-of-a-kind, higher end look with just a can of spray paint!
Use Krylon’s All-in-One Fusion paint when…
- You want to update old lights or hardware.
- You want to give new lights a different or more updated/expensive look like I did.
- You have lights and hardware that do not match, and you want to create a more cohesive look.
I have two more fun DIY projects with Krylon in the coming months, and I can’t wait to share them you!
I hope you have a blessed week!
