Hollywood Bathroom Lighting- GONE!

 So this is the typical builders lighting. EEK! Hollywood Bathroom lighting to be exact, don't ask me why. It does not say Hollywood to me. I think it's the cheapest lighting possible so the builder's just go with it.
Here is the BEFORE of my girls bathroom. You can't see it but it had a big bar of 8 "hollywood lights" at the top.
 Replacing lighting can be pretty expensive. I've been looking for a deal and found one at csn for this maxium light fixture in country stone with 7 lights for only $39 shipped! Whew hew I'll take it. And although the brown was not bad, I have a lot of black accents in that room.
So out came the ORB- oil rubbed bronze spray paint. No I didn't prime it, but I figure it is not going to be touched much and it had a mat finish to start with. I taped off my no spray areas, propped her up on some boxes and a tarp and went to town.
 And here she is now. Ahh so soo sooo much better.
I found the long shelf at Goodwill (an $8 score) and painted it black.
 These are those $3 Walmart black frames with scrapbook paper and Gerber daisies in them with some black grosgrain ribbon to hang them.
 Isn't this "Hands" soap so cute? It was a Christmas present from a friend. It is printed on some clear plastic then rolled and put into the soap.
 A close up of the ORB finish. It's mainly black with a hint of shiny brown.
 Man it makes such a big difference, and it makes me feel even better that things like this increase the value of your home so it is totally worth it!
Now I just need to frame out the mirror kinda like I did in this post!
 (No I did not get paid in any way to do this post, just thought I would pass along a good find and idea)
