Good Bye Gold Pt. 2

 Since the front light fixtures came out so pretty with a little spray made the other gold things stand out more! I am not too sure why I really hate gold so much....I think it is too shiny. I don't have the same issue with brushed nickle or chrome....

 This porch light was not as cooperative as the other two. The glass didn't seem to come off any which way I tried to slide it out! 

 Painters tape to the rescue!

Looks brand new right?

 This door thingy screwed right off!

 I just used plain brown on this and not the oil rubbed bronze.

 Now it matches our welcome mat!

 The gold numbers had to go too! We bent these up pretty bad and so we bought new numbers at Wal Mart for $1.27 each.

And the door bell got spray painted too! I forgot to get the before picture, but it was a dingy creamy yellow color. Rachel is mad because she tried to come outside with me but she was not dressed very modestly for outside =)

Since we are outside I wanted to show off my lily getting ready to bloom! The others got attacked mid stem by Joshua and will not be blooming this year =(

And now there is no more Gold on the outside of our house! Now if only we could get our grass to grow back after Chris went a little nuts with the Weed Be Gone!

Don't worry, you are not alone in your dislike of the gold brass color. Ha Great job with the make overs!

Thanks Jessica =) I bet in a few years the oil rubbed bronze will be out of
