Spray Painting Ceiling Fan Light Fixtures

white and brushed metal ceiling fan

If you have an old ceiling fan light in your home, it may need some updating. An easy and affordable way to update an ugly ceiling fan light fixture is to cover it with spray paint. Spray painting ceiling fan light fixtures is a simple job that anyone can do at home. Here are a few tips for doing the job.

Step 1 - Go Shopping

Visit your local home improvement store and purchase spray paint for the light fixture. You may also want to pick up some supplies, including gloves and tape.

When you have everything you need, find a workspace and cover it with newspaper to protect the area. With this project you won't have to disassemble the ceiling fan. All you have to do is remove the light fixtures and place them on the newspaper.

Step 2 - Paint

Once you have taken down the light fixtures, tape any areas that you don't want to cover with paint. When this is completed, spray the light fixtures with your chosen paint color, making sure to do several light coats rather than one thick coat. This will prevent drips from drying on the surface and create a nice, even texture.

Let the ceiling fan light fixtures dry completely before putting them back on the ceiling fan.
