We have talked about spray painting light fixtures and even using spray paint to refresh a rug, seriously though, spray paint can transform just about ANYTHING! Smile

I have spray painted everything from cabinet knobs, plant stands, picture frames, candle sticks, to random décor objects and frames on mirrors. 

Spray paint comes in just about any color so the color possibilities are endless!

She spray painted and then glazed this frame to bring out the detail – here’s a great tutorial on how to glaze items.

So take a look around your home or Goodwill and find something you can make something amazing with some spray paint! Winking smile

What have you spray painted?  And what is your favorite brand or color to use?

      isn’t that neat! I have wanted to try it myself but taking off 20+ doorknobs and wondering if the paint might chip off – hmmmm?? it’s sort of low down on my list 🙂 I have read followup posts though of people that have done it that had said that it has held up great – use primer, many light coats of paint, and maybe a clear coat or sealer on top.

  3. Great post! Thanks for including my soap pump!!!

  4. I’ve wanted to do oil rubbed bronze lamps and burgundy shades to match my curtains for the longest time! We’ve been saving for a house so splurging for expensive lamps has been on the bottom of the priority list. I’m not much of a visionary when it comes to crafts but given idea I’m crafty enough to pull it off. THANK YOU soooo much for this lamp tutorial! I just sprayed my brass lamps I found at the Goodwill for $3.00 tonight!!! My husband its extremely impressed too! 🙂

  5. I just loved reading some of ur posts for the first time today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Spray Paint!!! Alot of times I will just look for things around my house to paint! My husband and son call me “spray paint queen”! They r always giving me a hard time about it because they just don’t get it!! I wld much rather take something I already have tht I don’t necessarily like the looks of anymore and spiff it up for alot less $$ than going out and buying something new to put in its place! Also, it means so much more to me to do it tht way for the sentimental value of it!! It’s nice to talk (message;)) someone else tht gets it!!! I look forward to seeing whatelse u come up with!!!! Thank u 🙂
