Repurposing with Spray Paint

Earlier this spring, as soon as it was nice enough outside on a weekend, I gathered a bunch of my spray paint & thrifty items, as well as some things I had shopped from around my house.

Out I went & set up my driveway as Spray Painting Central!

Here's what happened that day...

My vintage kitchen canisters got a fresh coat of vintage green.

This previously beat up picture frame got a coat of turquoise...

And now houses a beloved Disney photo from last year's summer vacation.

A friend of mine gave me this ceramic head along with a few others. I spray painted this one grey...

And it's now a bookend on our bookshelf!

This little napkin holder was previously green, but now it's trendy grey!

This wicker balls were a neutral wood, but I brightened them up with some cheery yellow...

They are now brightening up the bookshelf in our basement's family room. 

This thrifty tray was previously spray painted blue, but it wasn't quite the shade of blue I had wanted. After I found the turquoise blue I wanted in the States in March (they have way more color selection for some reason!), this tray got a new coat...

I use it as a display for my earring collection.

I also spray painted a thrifty picture frame, but I'm still working on the rest of that project & will show you as soon as it's completed!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my transformations! I love seeing what a little spray paint can do!
