SprayPaintDIY

We’re going to let you in on a DIY secret: if you’ve got a can of spray paint, there’s a lot you can do! Spray paint today offers you more than just the ability to quickly refresh the paint or even change the color of something.

If you have an old piece of furniture, knick knack, mirror, picture frame or vase – when you add your creativity there is the ability to create something stunning. Now there is fun spray paint that offers chalk board style, the beach glass look and even the super luxe mirrored style.

We bet that once you start DIY projects with spray paint, on old items you have in the house that you won’t be able to stop. That’s because you’ll realize you can turn a dresser that no one looks twice at – into a lookalike for the one that Pottery Barn sells for big bucks!

Here are 40 terrific spray paint projects. If you are new to spray painting DIY, we recommend you start with one that only uses a single color to “get your feet wet” so to speak. But before you know it, you’ll be having fun making Chevron stripes or an Ombre shading look to home décor that everyone will admire.
Developing your spray painting skills is a “must” especially if you love tag sales, garage sales and estate sales. That’s because you, more than anyone, know that its possible to buy furniture and items for your home and sweet prices. But what will simply astonish you is adding that extra touch of spray paint makes the difference between cute and totally amazing!
