We're back with more bathroom DIY projects! Woo Hoo! Raise your hand if you're excited!!! (me, me, me!!!....I'm still excited and in love with my new bathroom. you can't tell, right?)
How about a little faucet face lift to brighten up your day???
Take a look at this BEFORE pic...
It's just your basic cheap-o faucet. You know, the kind you buy for like 25 bucks because you spend your house budget elsewhere, and all the cute, pretty, fancy ones stare at you as you grab the plain, tacky, shiny one. Ya, that's the one.
This is what happens to the cheap-o's... (at least in my house)
So, since we were giving our bathroom a major makeover ON A BUDGET, I needed to come up with a cheap way to fix this nastiness.
Enter -----------> Spray Paint
What doesn't spray paint fix anyways!?!?
We lightly sanded the surface of the faucet with our grinder equipped with a wire wheel. Then, gave it a quick coat of primer (all we had was tractor enamel? You work with what you got when you live on a farm.)
Did you check out that hint???
Then, we used our favorite Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint in Oil Rubbed Bronze and gave it two coats, letting it fully dry in between.
HELLLLOOOO!!! Lookin' better already, right???
So, this transformation was enough for me to jump up and down...twice!
Plus, we already had the spray paint and the primer. That means this face lift was FREE!
How about a before and after...?
This is my first time spray painting a faucet. That means I'm not sure how long this is going to last. For all I know, my rust will sneak back to the surface after awhile. But until then, I'm going to enjoy my FREE faucet face lift for as long as it lasts. I'll take FREE any day!
It's been a little over a month and it's still looks great! I'll keep you posted...
Thanks for stopping by today! See you Friday for Finally Friday! Have a great day!
