Got an ugly bath bar light fixture like this?
Yours might actually have all the bulbs in working order, but mine doesn’t. Just keepin’ it real, folks.
My neighbor was over the other day looking at paint swatches with me and she suggested I paint the one in my Seuss-y bathroom. I figured it couldn’t hurt and even if this project was an epic fail I’d only be out the cost of a can of spray paint.
So I went for it.
I took the fixture down and gave it a couple coats of glossy red. (I know, I know! I swore I’d never do that again. But I did. And I liked it.)
Then I made a template for the flat part on the top. I used wax paper because that’s what was in the drawer behind me. Plus, I liked that I could see through it.
I used the template to cut a piece of fabric (leftovers from the towel project). Then I carefully glued the fabric to the light fixture, working from the center out. Make sure not to stretch the fabric and to only apply the glue to the flat part. I used Mod Podge.
Once that was dry I flipped the light fixture over and cut each circle into eighths, like an asterisk. I folded those sections to the back and glued them down.
Then I did a final thin coat of Mod Podge on top of the fabric only.
As you can see, I painted. The color is Salty Tear from Behr. I tried their new Ultra Premium Plus (or something equally important sounding). It’s allegedly paint and primer in one. The bathroom only took one coat, so yay!
