Clean the ceiling light fixtures with an ammonia-based cleaner to remove all grease and dirt from the surface. Place the fixture on a cloth outside. Sprays have a tendency to travel and produce harmful fumes. Making work outside minimizes the mess and reducing the effects of paint smoke. Tape away all areas that you do not want to paint with low tackiness to target magazines and newspapers. Remove all decorative items such as shades and set aside.

Spray the whole ceiling light fixtures or bath bar using white splash primer. Choose a spray primer for slippery surfaces. The can should be labeled “bonding primer.” Spray the primer in a steady, reciprocating motion, slightly overlapping each passage of the spray can. Apply 2:58 rocks; allow the primer to dry for about an hour between each layer. Turn the fixture over to the opposite side and spray all areas you missed.

Tips and warnings

Purchase crystals and fabric lampshades to add to antique charm your fixture. Crystals can be found at most craft shops.
