One of the projects on the list we originally sent to our landlord for approval was to refinish the old vent covers. They were one of the first eye sores I noticed during walk-throughs and conveniently one of the easiest to address. Nothing a fresh coat of paint couldn’t fix up.
The other night, looking around the house just wanting a project to feel “finished,” I remembered this little upgrade. I went around and collected all the old chipping brass vent covers and took them outside where I’d spread out some newspaper.
Using the same can of Rustoleum oil-rubbed bronze spray paint that I’d used for the curtain rod project, I gave all the vent covers a nice coat of fresh paint.
Once they’d had a couple of hours to dry, I popped them back into place. Easy as that. This isn’t so much a “how-to” post as it is a “look how easy it is to make a drastic improvement” post.
Just look how much better the oil-rubbed bronze looks with the new bathroom tiles.
Yes, the blinds are awful. We’ll replace those eventually. Anyone care for a before and after from back when we moved in? Yeah… yikes.
