5 easy spray paint makeover ideas from some of my favorite thrifty projects.
I have a confession to make.
I’ve always loved painting and DIY but I used to hate using spray paint. Ok, maybe not hate but I did have a deep dislike.
Give me a can of paint and a good ole’ paint brush and I could paint all day long. Spray paint was a different story though. I had no love for it.
It took me a while to get the hang of using it, but I eventually warmed up to the idea. Now I can’t imagine not using it.
There’s really nothing you can’t do with a can of spray paint. It can transform even the simplest pieces, and it won’t break the bank.
When we were renovating our kitchen in our Illinois house, I really wanted to have a chalkboard calendar. I had an idea in mind but when I spied a vintage mirror in a thrift store, my plans changed. This turned out to be one of my fave projects that I’ve ever done (and it was so easy to do).
This was another kitchen renovation project.
I searched high and low for a cute lamp for our new kitchen. When I couldn’t find what I wanted I decided to make one with a $1.99 Mason jar that I found at the thrift store. It turned out even better than I hoped.
Talk about thrifty…
This plant stand idea was as cheap as they come. All I needed was a tomato cage, that we already had, and spray paint…of course.
What we got was a one-of-a-kind plant stand.
I usually have an idea of what I want when I’m decorating. If I can’t find what I’m looking for, I usually end up making it. This one was super easy and all it took was an inexpensive glass vase, painter’s tape and spray paint. It turned out to be the perfect piece.
What do you do with a green lamp when you change the decor in a bedroom? You paint it!
This one was a bit of an experiment but I love the way it turned out. A huge spray paint win!
So, how do you feel about spray paint? Have you done any projects with it?
