We moved into a new house, and in the dining room was one of those tacky, cheap, brass-esque ceiling lights.  You know the ones, I'm sure.  They seemed to breed rapidly in 1979, then thankfully died out by 1985, except for rental homes and fixer-uppers.

Ours worked fine, but was dull, rusted in spots (how "brass" rusts is beyond me) and covered in sticky goop that I refuse to try to identify.

Anyway, our darling daughter-- who has very interesting taste in color, fashion, etc-- needed a light in her room, so we decide to redo it in a way that would get a huge "WOW!!" out of her.

Primer: $2
Spray paint: $4.
Glitter glue: $2
Having a one of a kind, superawesome light in your bedroom that your dorky parents made, making them not as dorky as you thought:  Priceless.

LOL!  Sure-- but if you paint your walls in any shade of beige, you will be grounded until the end of summer, missy!  I'm serious!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That looks sooooo much better! Love the colour. I'm doing one of these myself at the moment. It's drying on the dining table. Got primer all over my hands. Tomorrow it's getting painted green Smiley
