So I decided to take them apart and paint them black with rustoleum paint. They look better now, don't they?
|Before and after|
|I took apart both fixtures, laid them out on paper,and sprayed them down with paint|
|It took a few coats|
|And turning them over a few times to reach every part|
|But the finished look was worth it|
Now the front door needs to be refinished, but that will be a 2 + day project, something I don't have time for right now.
The front door has the sun beating on it all day long and it's all cracked, weather worn, and dried out, so it needs to be sanded down, refinished, and have a protective seal put on it, but I don't have the tools to do it properly right now, so I'll move on to other projects in the meantime.
