Creative Spray Paint Projects

Round up of some of the best DIY spray paint projects found online {The Creativity Exchange}


I think most of you have figured out by now that I get a weak in the knees when it comes to spray paint transformations. Just the words alone make me all tingly inside.  I love creative spray paint projects so much that I created a Pinterest Board here awhile back that is nothing but spray paint colors!  So many great projects there!

That brings me to this week’s Paint It Monday, which is a round-up of some of the coolest spray paint transformations that I have found in lately on Pinterest and in Blogland.  I hope you find something today that makes you all spray paint tingly too! So let’s jump right in!

One of my favorite ideas that I have seen lately are these kids plastic magnets spray painted in Rustoleum gold by Michael at Inspired by Charm:

I just love this idea and what a great gift idea to spray the alphabet and wrap it up for a cute gift!  I just adore Michael and you can check out this awesome tutorial on his blog here.

Next up, I just love all of the spray painted vase transformations out there and this one from Ashley at Sugar and Cloth is one of my favorites:

Ashley spray painted a logo glass that she received at a restaurant in Memphis.  I usually just throw those away but next time I’m gonna spray paint it!  Brilliant!  To see Ashley’s tutorial for this easy project, you can check it out here.

There are so many really outside of the box spray paint projects out there that I just stay amazed!  One of the coolest ones I have seen is from one of my very favorite bloggers, Jenny from Little Green Notebook:

You have got to take a look at Jenny’s before and after pictures.  It’s really incredible how she transformed this ugly vinyl chair into something so chic and fabulous.  Jenny’s post can be found here.

Another big spray painting trend that I have been seeing a lot of lately is updating old tarnished hardware with spray paint like this awesome trash to treasure project from Lettie at Living & Lovely:

Lettie did a fantastic job with this furniture revamp tutorial and if you’ve always wanted to know how to update old hardware with spray paint, you can check out Lettie’s post here.

I am really into adding pops of gold throughout my home right now and I just love this easy and inexpensive idea to spray paint a cheap wire waste basket in gold from Mari at Crab and Fish:

I just love Mari’s idea for quick pop of gold chic!  You can find Mari’s tutorial here.

Another brilliant spray paint project that I love are these old file cabinets sprayed with a pop of turquoise from Shara at Little Gray Table:

Shara really thought outside the box on this one and you have got to see her post here to find out how she used these file cabinets to create a desk.  Absolutely amazing Shara!!

I also love this fantastic tutorial from Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for transforming old furniture with spray paint.  Rhoda transformed her old kitchen table and chair set for her new porch:

I adore Rhoda and her blog and she really wrote a very helpful post on how to spray paint furniture.  You can find that post here.

I also love any spray paint project that Kate from Centsational Girl does because she just picks some of the greatest colors and her finish always looks flawless!  I especially love these frames that Kate recently sprayed for her daughter’s bedroom:

Kate has tons of awesome spray paint transformations including these awesome frames.  For details, you can check Kate’s post out here.

Of course, I have also done my fair share of spray paint transformations, which you can look through here. However, I think my favorite spray paint project so far is the spray painting old junk jewelry:

I have had so much fun this summer transforming my old junk costume jewelry with spray paint!  I think I have done almost every color imaginable and my pieces have held up perfectly!

I could go on and on highlighting all of the awesome spray paint projects in Blogland.  I will stop here but again, if you want to see more ideas and projects, be sure and check out my “Spray Paint Colors” board on Pinterest.

Thanks for hanging out with me today and I’ll be back on Wednesday!

    I jumped over to view the alphabet project and loved it. Your blog always has great projects that “I” can do.

    I have spray painted a few things like furniture, lamps, and frames, however, they always seem to chip. Do you know how this can be avoided?
