Update Using Spray Paint
Why Buy It When You Can Make It!
Well, hello all you HELLO readers – I know it’s been awhile since my last post, so today we are going to ease back in by showing you how to update your old goods to new pretties, because my thought…Why buy it when you can make it – update using spray paint!
I have been cruising Pintrest and other awesome sites for great ways to update some old items in our home. I hate buying things like door knobs when they all work, or lamps when they still turn on, or even old clear vases when then still hold items well and have nothing wrong with them. So today, I am going to show you some projects from fellow bloggers who have done just that … updated their old items into new pretty ones. Hence the title, update using spray paint.
Spray paint these days is a remarkable tool. I always keep about 20 cans in different colors on hand so I can change things up when I get tired of looking at them. Rustoelum and Krylon are my two best cans!
Let’s look at our first project updated using spray paint. Casa de Kemper shows on their blog how their old brass chandy goes black and beautiful with Spray paint. Just look at the update they provided with minimal work! Can you believe it’s the same chandy?
Next up, we see that Handle the Heat does an awesome job showing their update using spray paint by completing a DIY door knob makeover. This truly is one of the quickest and easiest way to revamp your old ugly door knobs for cheap! Do we like them better than the brass?
Next up, I Village goes for the Goodwill lamp update with Krylon’s best paint and shows you how to turn boring into fab using mercury glass while updating using spray paint. Look at the difference between the two – AMAZING….am I right? Bet you would pay a bunch for these at a good retailer like Pottery Barn 😉
Our life is blessed beyond measure shows us how to update and old window frame to an awesome new mirror. Stop by their blog and see the show as she makes magic happen using spray paint. Look at those results!
Now that you have seen these amazing updates using spray paints are you going to give it a try? I have and made some awesome things for our home using it. Why toss it away when a can of spray can give you a wonderful new update. Go ahead give it a try! Find us on Bob Vila Nation, Pinterest, Facebook and Hometalk. You can also follow me on Instagram!
