1. Thrift Store Bird Cage Makeover
Whether you have an old bird cage sitting around, find one at your local thrift store, or you use a plastic one that you can pick up at most Dollar Stores, this is an excellent project if you want to add a French feel to your décor. This bird cage spray painted black is as easy to make as it is elegant.
2. Blue Chandelier
You can breathe new life into a faded old chandelier or give a makeover to a new one with a simple can of spray paint. I have to say, I love this gorgeous blue color. Changing the color of your chandelier will instantly change the look and feel of any room, so if you’re looking to renovate but you don’t want to make massive changes, this will certainly do it.
3. Not So Metal Galvanized Tub
So, a simple plastic tub, that you can get at the Dollar Store for a dollar or two, can be turned into this amazing galvanized looking tub with just a single can of metallic silver spray paint. You can use the tub for so many things and no one will know that it’s actually plastic unless you tell them. Plus, plastic doesn’t rust so you get the gorgeous look of a galvanized tub without the worries of leaving it out in the rain.
4. Painted Lampshades
Instead of buying new lighting, just change up what you have. You’ll save a fortune and still get a great new look for the bedroom or living room. You can easily spray paint lamp shades and even the bases if they’re metal. Get creative, use stencils or tape to make designs, or just go with a complete covering of a different color. There are so many ways to change up your lamp shades!
5. DIY Chrysanthemum Clock
Believe it or not, this gorgeous clock is made with plastic spoons, and it’s spray painted! I love the color and this looks like a relatively easy project. It’ll take about 250 plastic spoons and you’ll need the clockwork supplies, which you can get at any craft store, unless you have an old broken clock that you can transform. It’ll take a few hours, but it’s so well worth the effort!
6. DIY Cupcake Pedestal
So this is a fluted pie pan turned upside down and attached to a candlestick and then spray painted. It makes the most gorgeous cupcake pedestal! If you bake a lot, which I do, then you’re going to want to make this. You can get fluted pie pans at most stores new for just a few dollars, or find an older one at thrift stores for probably less than a dollar. The candlesticks can be bought at the Dollar Store for a dollar or so each.
7. DIY Mercury Glass Vase
Seriously, the things you can create with spray paint! This gorgeous vase started out as an ordinary glass vase, which you can pick up for a couple dollars. A few sprays of mirror effect spray paint and you have an amazing mercury glass vase that looks like you spent a small fortune on it. This is such a wonderful gift idea for just about anyone.
8. Stunning Gold Wicker Chair
How much do you love this elegant gold wicker chair? It’s absolutely gorgeous! Now, if you don’t have an old wicker chair to use, I can tell you that you can probably find one at Goodwill or any other thrift store. Even if you have to repair the seat or sand down some rough areas, you’re probably only going to pay a few dollars for it. Then you just hit it with a few coats of gold spray paint and you’ve got a stunning chair for your foyer.
9. DIY Gold And White Bowls
So these gold and white bowls run around $150 if you buy them. But…you can make them for such a small fraction of that. You’ll need bowls and some gold and white spray paint. Spray the inside of the bowl gold and the outside white. These are really gorgeous when they’re finished and make wonderful jewelry holders.
10. Soup Can Flower Pots
Yes, I know it’s not spring yet, but you have to admit that these soup can flower pots are such a great project. This is a great project for any time of the year. You just recycle those old soup cans, or whatever cans you may have on hand. Clean them up and spray paint them whatever colors you want. The paint helps to prevent against rust and gives you a wonderful display for your spring plants.
11. Refurbished Outdoor Cushions
You know how dingy those outdoor cushions get after a few years of use? Buying new ones can be expensive. Sewing new ones yourself is an option but takes so much time. A better way is to spray paint those old cushions. I was amazed I must say at the thought of spray painting cushions, but apparently it’s a thing and it works wonderfully!
12. DIY Garden Gazing Ball
An old bowling ball and a can of chrome spray paint will give you this gorgeous mirrored garden gazing ball. If you’ve ever wanted one of these, this is your chance to save some money and make it for yourself. You can get an old bowling ball at most thrift stores for just a couple of dollars and then just set your ball up on a garden ornament or statue.
13. DIY Outdoor Planters
You love those huge outdoor planters, right? They look so great lining the walkway, but they can be very expensive. With a $15 garbage can and a can of spray paint, you can recreate that same look and save so much money! I priced a large planter for my porch at around $100, and I’ll take $15 over that any day. These are so easy, too and you can do them in different colors if you want to match a specific theme.
14. DIY Flower Art
Art is gorgeous but it can also be expensive, plus there aren’t many times that you find precisely what you want to hang on your walls. Well, make your own art and get the perfect wall display, plus you can save a fortune when you create that art with spray paint. Some leaves or branches, whatever you want to create really, canvas and your chosen paint color are all you need to grace your walls with lovely DIY art.
15. DIY Countertop Redo
Yes, you can spray paint those countertops, too! Imagine saving hundreds of dollars and still getting the new countertops you want. Rustoleum makes a wonderful stone looking paint that won’t cost you much and you just paint over your current countertops to make them look completely new and completely different. This is a great project if you’re redoing the kitchen and need to save a little money in the process.
16. DIY Side Table
This trash can turned side table is an amazing project. You just pick up a wire trash can, which you can get at the Dollar Store for around $5 or so, and then spray paint it the color that you need it to be. This is a great idea for a teen’s room and it’s such a quick and easy project.
17. DIY Chevron Rug
This chevron rug is really neat and it’s so easy to make with a can of black spray paint. The most work you’ll do is taping off the chevron pattern, which may take an hour or so. Once you’ve painted the areas you want painted, just let it dry and remove the tape and you’ve got a great rug. This is a really good repurposing project for old worn out rugs, too.
18. Dalek Dresser
If you’re a Whovian, meaning that you absolutely can’t get enough of Dr. Who, then you’re going to love this Dalek dresser. You can use silver or even mirrored spray paint to get the look. If you have a son, or daughter, who loves Dr. Who then they will absolutely go mad over this DIY dresser. And, you can add various highlights or embellish it in a number of ways while still keeping with the theme.
19. Spray Painted Lace Chairs
This is the most amazing project I think I’ve seen in forever! You take spray paint and a lace pattern and create chairs that look like they’re made of lace. The design is gorgeous and you can dress up old chairs instantly with this project. Whether you’re changing your dining room chairs or you just want something a bit different for the entryway, this is the perfect project to transform those old chairs into something new and elegant.
20. Anthropologie Inspired Golden Logs
Anthropologie décor is great, but it’s also rather expensive. If you love the gold candles from Anthropologie, you can get the same look with a few short logs and a can of gold spray paint. While they’re not candles, they are still beautiful golden logs that you can use to decorate wherever you want. If you don’t have logs, you can probably get them at your local lumber yard. Choose a few small, short ones and then create this gorgeous look yourself!
