I have an addiction. I admit it. I love COLOR!!
Bright colors to me = HAPPY!!
And one of the easiest ways to bring color into your home is through paint!
I’m so excited to take part in Beth from Home Stories AtoZ’s How to Decorate Series with 25 bloggers each sharing a different aspect of decorating. The posts are so informative and inspiring!
Be sure to go over to Beth’s blog and get all of the information on this amazing series!
Spray paint is so easy and quick.
It’s instant gratification!
I use it ALL the time in my home to bring in new colors or change out old colors for new ones.
Here are are a few recent projects I have done with Spray Paint.
One of my favorite projects of all time was the Family Gallery Wall I created. I spray painted these frames white and I spray painted an old table I inherited from my grandma yellow. The paint really gave the project the clean boost it needed.
In the Teen Hangout Room I created, I spray painted a vintage table hot pink and mod podged wall paper to it to add a little POP of color!
And if spray painting a big piece of furniture seems intimidating, you can start off my spray painting small things like I did with this Clip Board Wall that I spray painted bright colors and hung in my #1905Cottage!
I might have an obsession with chandelier makeovers. And the easiest way to transform them is with spray paint!

I also love to spray paint vintage doors and use them as a backdrop on my mantel!
And one of my favorite spray painted furniture projects is the gold chair from my Master Bedroom Makeover
And I love that there are different techniques you can use with spray paint to achieve different looks. Like this DIY Faux Mercury Glass Technique I used with Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint to acheive the look of Mercury Glass!
And spray paint can bring a lot of color in easily. Like these crates that I spray painted different colors and created a little Spring Crate Centerpiece on the #1905Cottage porch!
And I also spray painted that little Vintage Bistro Set yellow. I told you I love spray paint LOL!
You can spray paint almost anything. I have spray painted rugs and found that the spray painted ones last longer than the regular painted ones. How interesting is that?!
Another of my favorite projects was spray painting my pots all one color last year!
And I had a great time spray painting board to create a Beachy Paneled Wall in my oldest daughter’s room.
I’ve even spray painted shoes – you can make your shoes over in 10 minutes!!
I could go on and on. I pretty much spray paint anything that doesn’t move around my house.

You made a beautiful decor by using spary paint, this is such an amazing idea.
If you’re going to do that much spray painting, you might as well invest in a compressor and an HVLP spray gun. You’ll save more money AND be able to use materials that are better for the planet.

Ooooooo I really love that pink TV stand!!!! Not sure the hubby will agree though… XD

Amazing product! I redid all my kitchen cabinets in old linen. The paint is fantastic only needs 2 coats. Finished with the clear wax and antiqued with the dark wax. I was so confused and did a lot of research and I am very happy I sealed with the was even though I do a lot of cooking….the cabinets clean up beautifully with mild cleanser. Highly recommend it!!

I love spray paint!! I do wish there were a wider range of colors. I’ve learned to do several very light coats to avoid drips.

this weekend I’m spray painting my daughters old bike to make it new again for my son. it’s going from red dora the explorer. to home depot orange with bright blue accents. did the same 2 yr ago. went from a hot pink bunny bike to a red and blue spiderman bike. saves a ton of money on not having to buy new and the kids are happy.
Preval Tech says
This is AWESOME. So many cool pieces using spray paint.
Just wanted to let you know about the Preval Sprayer as it’s pretty awesome for DIY projects. You can mix your own paint in the glass jar that attaches to the sprayer and use any type/color that you need. And it’s really easy to clean up.
Good luck with the rest of the blog series and keep up the awesome projects!!
What a gorgeous ( fun ) home – just love all the color – you make me realize I need to incorporate some of that !
Just beautiful !
wow after MONTHS of not hearing from you it is a colorful newsletter. hope it means I am back on the list.

I love all of your fabulous use of color and especially the yellow, my favorite. I love spray paint andyou definitely use it wisely. Great post.
I would say you have mastered the spray paint!! I need to pick your brain. I sprayed my dining room chairs and now some of the paint is chipping/peeling. Do you seal all your furniture after you spray paint it? What do you use?
Love, love, love all the happy, cheerful colors!

I am still honing my spray paint skills but love what I’ve done so far from repurposing shutters to hardware on drawers to anything else that strikes my fancy. Thankfully people like you give me the nudge to get more creative like that so thanks!! 🙂
I love all your colorful additions to your home. I too love spray paint but I’m curious where you spray. Do you have a designated area in a garage or basement to do it? The overspray is not my friend. Would love some suggestions for spray painting larger pieces that don’t fit into a “box spray painting booth”.
Tom @ Raise Your Garden says
Painted Yellow Pots, wow those are popping. I love all the ideas and paint colors. My problem is that I’m color blind and can never seem to pick the right color. I wish I had the wood bead chandelier since my two year got onto the table and pulled out all the glass crystals off. Very nice.
