If you’re craving some new, jazzier stuff around your house, head to the store. But don’t buy new stuff – just buy some spray paint to make your old stuff look all shiny and new! Spray paint is the unexpected but handy reviver of old furniture, boring decor, or dingy fabrics. It can take anything ordinary and make it colorful and chic – all in a matter of minutes and for only a few bucks. That sounds a lot better than spending hundreds on new furniture, doesn’t it? Take a look at some of the ways spray paint can completely transform your old stuff.
Our outdoor furniture tends to take a lot of flack – it’s weathering the elements, plus probably a good amount of dirt and food spills. If your cushions are looking dingy, don’t replace them! Spray paint them a bold color for a more clean look.
Spray paint can make anything look like it belongs in Better Homes and Gardens – even sticks! For outdoor or indoor decor, find some hefty sticks, and spray paint them fun colors for an artsy, all-natural vibe.
Have an outdoor picnic or party coming up? You’ll probably be looking for metal folding chairs, which you can find for cheap just about anywhere. If the chairs are rusted or just boring, spray paint them fun colors to jazz up your party atmosphere!
Do you love the look of animal cracker jars but hate that cheesy plastic top? Then nix the plastic look! Spray paint the top a fancy color and replace the label with a free printable online for cheap but classy kitchen containers.
Like we said, outdoor furniture has a tough job. And sometimes, not just the cushions get roughed up. If your whole furniture is looking a little worse for the wear, give the whole thing a new coat of paint to make it look good as new!
Dingy metal furniture is practically begging for you to spray it with fun, new colors. Black is so bland and that metal tends to chip and look not-so-nice. Refresh the whole look of your set with a bright new palette.
