Along the lines of another question previously asked, I want to update
our recessed lighting the cheapest way possible--paint! The outside
ring is white and the inside of the lighting is gold. We would either
like to paint the inside white (can't stand gold) or paint the ring
and the inside the same color as we have our ceiling painted (we
aren't sure of a color yet).
My first question is do I need to use a special paint on the inside,
and if so what? I'm assuming I do since it probably gets pretty hot in
there but I wanted to ask.
I realize the ring doesn't require special paint but can I just go
ahead and use the same paint I would use for the inside?
The second question is how should we go about painting them
successfully with the least amount of work. Our ceiling is 22 feet
high so when the painters come in to paint he ceiling we are going to
ask them to paint the lighting. I'm not sure they have any experience
with the lighting so I wanted to ask to make sure we do it right. As
it is now we can't get up that high to do it ourselves so they will be
changing out light bulbs for us as well.
Thanks for any help!
