I live in a slumlord-owned apartment with a crummy, single bulb, upright pointing brass light fixture in the bathroom. I absolutely can't replace it or take it down to paint it. The walls in the room are really thin and it's not worth risking removal, not to mention the electrical work in this place is scary. Trust me when I it can't happen. I'd like to paint it, but I don't want to use spray paint, since it's just removing the glass covering the bulb is already a hassle and the room isn't well ventilated either. I'm looking for something I can apply by hand with a brush or sponge. I don't need anything terribly fancy. The goal is simple: make it look slightly less crummy and less noticeable.
