Back in February, when I posted my last recessed lighting update, I had spray painted 2 of the living room recessed lighting trims with off-white spray paint. Last weekend I finally got off my butt and did the rest!
I also learned something EXTREMELY helpful this time around! You can just use your fingers and pop off the little metal ring from each recessed light – you don’t have to un-clip and take down the entire trim piece – major time saver! As an example, here’s a full trim piece [ring-side down] vs. just the little ring:
Now the living room is done:
The dining room is done:
The downstairs hallway is done [the wall color looks so different when the flash goes off!]:
And the laundry room is done:
Here’s a picture of me demonstrating how easy it is to pop off the little ring – just apply a tiny bit of pressure and pull down:
[Last Christmas there was a full-spiral spider web in the laundry room light – now it’s just a dusty remnant – it was so pretty!]
