Default reuse grow light?

Okay i am new to hydroponics so if this is all bs please let me know. I started my hydroponic project about 2 weeks ago, got all my supplies etc. After setting up and running for a few days i found my grow light i bought from walmart had blown :-(; i thought such a short life. Well i the process of researching hydroponics i saw a glimpse of another project someone was doing --hollowing out light bulbs. When i seen that my grow light had blown, which when i bought it i said hmm this looks like a normal light bulb with special paint. I decided i would try and hallow my light bulb out and put an led in it.

Guide to hollow out light bulb
I also had another regular light bulb that had blown so i decided to try with it first and the results were good.

However the grow light didn't turn out so great but
