{Post 1,084} Where, O Where Did theBrass Light Fixture Go?

Where o where did the light fixture go?  O where, o where could it be?  In the garage, drying after being spray painted oil-rubbed bronze to match the mirror frames!  I put a space  heater next to it and am rotating it, so it's nearly dry!  Yippee!

Please note the burn marks on the ceiling from the 8 light bulbs in the fixture.  They will soon be gone...maybe even today!  But most likely before the weekend.  I have been reading horror stories about painting on an old popcorn ceiling (which is what this is), but I'm going to put paintbrush in hand and hope for the best!

Instead of using a "real" brush, maybe use one of those sponge brushes & dab at it, not rub or stroke? You might consider watering down the paint too....One time (many, many years ago) my Mother forogot to open the flu on the chimney & got smoke marks up the front of the chimney & on the popcorn ceiling. For lack of $$ she used white shoe polish & dabbed at the popcorn ceiling!! it worked!
