Paint Recessed Light Trim

This is the first house where I have felt like I can actually see what I am doing. In the last house we literally had one lamp in the living room and I always felt like I was siting in the dark. 🙂 Our new house has a ton of “huge” recessed lights…black ones. What’s wrong with white? They are in every room but they are ugly….they look like mini space ships stuck in ceiling :).
We haven’t done anything to them because I thought if we changed them it would be costly and messy but I didn’t realize I could take out the black insert of the light and spray paint it white! Whoo hoo! They look so much better now!!!
For our living room lights all we had to so is pull out the black insert part, spray paint it, and pop it back in. Easy!
*Update* We are still painting our recessed lights!
In our Kitchen renovation, I unhooked the recessed light covers from the bead board ceiling.
I brought them outside to spray paint. I was able to spray paint all of these recessed lights with just one can of paint!
You can really see here the difference the paint makes!
We decided on a flat paint since we have been painting our ceilings with a flat paint.
