Hi again everyone, and thanks so much for coming!!
Today I’m going to show you a simple trick to save you a few bucks when getting that farmhouse lighting that you’ve been dreaming of!
Just recently we jumped on the shiplap bandwagon in our house, and I have to say that I love the way it turned out!
Once we finished our shiplap wall, I had the perfect vision of two farmhouse wall lights above our windows to give our shiplap wall the perfect finish!
While looking for what lights to go with, I made an awesome discovery! If I bought the unfinished metal lights, they were $10 dollars cheaper than buying the black colored lights. So with the two lights I needed, I saved $20 dollars by going with the metal colored lights. Then you buy black spray paint of your choice, and wa-lah, you have your black farmhouse lighting that you’ve been wanting for a cheaper price! Especially, if you get your spray paint at a craft store with a coupon!!! Cha-Ching! Even more money saved!!
Okay, here’s what you’ll need:
Farmhouse lighting of your choice. I chose the Hampton Bay Galvanized Wall Lanterns from Home Depot as seen above.
Black Spray Paint. I used the Rustoleum Black flat paint found here.
Puck Lights. I got mine from here.
Something that you can spray paint on, a mask, and goggles, if you want to stay protected from the paint fumes!
Now let’s get started!!!
Gather all your items.
Remove the lighting, take it to your painting surface, and spray paint those lights on up!
Let them dry!
Put the light fixtures back together once the paint is completely dry.
Get your puck lights out, fill them with the batteries, and then attach the 3M PE foam that it comes with to the back of them. Next, attach one side of the Velcro strip to that and the other Velcro strip to the light fixture. Attach them together and you have your lights in!!
Now hang your light fixtures where you want them!!
Hold your remote that your puck lights come with in a relatively close area and you can turn them on by remote!
That’s it! You now have farmhouse lighting for cheaper! Yessssss!
Now go buy yourself something with all the money you saved!! Okay, I guess you can save it too, if you’re more responsible with your money than I am!😬😉
