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!!!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by to check out how we painted our recessed lights Art! I used Valspar spray paint suitable for metal because the trim is metal. I wasn’t worried about using one specially for heat because we used LED bulbs and they don’t heat up that much. The trim still looks great now 3 years later and I haven’t had to touch them up since.
