He taped all the wires before spray painting.

He gave a light coat of flat spray paint to the metal surface of the lights.

Then he started cleaning the glass. Using Fish Foam window cleaner and a razor blade to scrape off the old stuff that had stuck to the glass!

Look at the difference. The piece of glass closest to us is the dirty one and the glass behind it is the clean one!

He put back together the lighting and rehung them on the front of the house!

  1. Great tip! Do you make house calls?

  2. Great tips! Now, if only we had some outdoor lighting like this to put what I’ve learned into action. (We had absolutely NO front porch lighting, so Mark installed white lights…so it’s Christmas all year round at our place. Ha ha.)

    Cheers,
    Lauren
