Updating brass fixtures dating for jewish seperated singles
Paint (and a few other simple products) are your friend here. You don’t even have to take them down to update them this way!
Ugh And I honestly don’t think they’ve been painted by anyone in 40 years. Just to give you a clue as to how dark and dingy they were…..

I’ll be sharing this “faux” patina tutorial soon, too. Do make sure your paint is not too thick and try to apply evenly. If you do, or if you want a bit more color, apply a second coat.
In our last home, we had a bathroom with bone coloured fixtures and when we redecorated, the budget did not allow for updating it with white.
However, our budget DID allow for 2 bottles of wine which helped me come to terms with the fact that we couldn’t afford to replace it.
I am SO thrilled to say all 3 worked out very nicely and we saved a bunch by not having to replace them. Painter’s tape and small artist style paint brushes . But just look at that fixture…would you ever guess it’s been painted?
:) If you follow along on Instagram, you might have seen a snippet or two (or 5, lol) over the weekend when I was painting/re-doing them. And just take a look at that crispy white ceiling I painted last night. Which is good because I usually come upon these creative things on a whim! The inner shade got one coat of paint and the outer shade got 2 coats of paint.
