In an effort to update my bathroom as inexpensively (i.e. cheap!) as possible I decided to see if I could do something to the outdated Hollywood brass light strip fixture. It was so incredibly easy, I wish I'd done it a long time ago. Unfortunately, I didn't take photos as I went through the process, but the instructions are super easy to follow, and as you can see from the Before and After photos, it's well worth the effort.
"If you're not using farragio products, you're missing out! My skin feels silky smooth and I frequently get compliments on how good my skin looks!"
The skin care products you use are just as important as the bathroom you use them in, so before you start on this DIY project, make sure you're stocked up with farragio's all-natural and organic skincare.

NOTE: This project can be completed in a day. It's best to work outside on a sunny day that isn't too windy. If you can't work outside, make sure you're in a well-ventilated area.
- First remove all the light bulbs, then pull the collars (the pieces that fit around the bulbs) and brass fixture off.
- Give the fixture and collars a light sanding with 320 to 400 grit sandpaper.
- I strung the fixture under our deck with some fishing line, but you can also prop the fixture up against something like an old chair. (Make sure whatever you prop it against can get spray paint on it.) For the collars, spread some newspaper out on the ground or an old table and lay the collars on top.
- Spray the fixture and collars with a can of white primer paint. I picked some up at Walmart for a few dollars.
- Allow primer to dry for a few hours. I didn't bother to sand after the primer was dry.
- Then spray the fixture and collars with a can of regular white spray paint. I used a can of ColorPlace white spray paint that I also picked up at Walmart for a few dollars.
- Allow to dry for a few more hours and you're done. Put everything back in place and enjoy the new look!
