So I thought I would "update" the fixtures by spraying them satin nickel. It wasn't necessarily a HUGE mistake because the brass was not the prettiest shade of brass anyway, but still, I never liked the satin nickel because it really did nothing for the funky shade of black, gray and deep purple mixed together that the glass is.
Finally, after about 2 years of wanting to change them to gold, I made the time to do it. I can NOT believe, that since I have become so busy with my refinishing business, the lack of time or really desire I have had to do my own home projects. I am getting a little DIY bug though and have a lot of great plans for upcoming projects.
I love this shade of gold, which is Rustoleum Pure Gold. It is a very pretty, soft shade of gold. Not too brassy, not too orange, but just right.
I really love this fixture and glad I didn't swap them out with new ones. The beaded glass has such a pretty reflection on the ceiling at night.
