How To Use Spray Paint for Home Decor

Good morning! I am officially done with school! Yay! How about you? Are you done teaching for the summer or are your kids out of school? Summer time is my time to get some larger projects done at home. We are finishing up a lot of the work in the living room and I am so pleased with how it is turning out! What a huge difference flooring and opening up spaces does to a room. I can’t wait to show you all! I have a few more things to finish up and then it will be ready to go!

How to use spray paint for your home decor

Last week, my favorite blogger, KariAnne, from Thistlewood Farms, blogged about spray painting different items for your home. Please hop over and take a look! I started thinking about all the items I have spray painted. In fact, my mom laughs at me when I say, ‘Just spray paint it!” ūüôā So I thought I would make my own list too. Some of the items are the same as Karianne’s, but most are different. There are just so many options!

1. Frames

I have painted SO many frames!! I find the outdated ones with fancy woodwork on them at the thrift store, take them home and spray paint them. You can paint them any color to match your decor. I have made mine into chalkboards, Christmas decor, or gasp! an actual frame!

2. Outdoor Furniture

Spray paint is a great way to refresh our outdoor furniture. The furniture can get faded and worn over time and this revives it. Be sure to clean the pieces well before painting. These Adirondack chairs are plastic and were a hunter green color, so I pulled out my favorite turquoise color and they look great! In fact, I just repainted them a couple of weeks ago! I also used spray paint on the metal furniture. Black is a great basic color and makes them look fresh and clean.

3. Dishes

I wouldn’t recommend actually using these painted dishes to eat off of, but its great for decor pieces. The pitcher had an 80’s design on it, but a few coats of white spray paint and it is up to date.

4. Home Decor

Do you have a vase you really like, but the color doesn’t go with your decor? Or find a piece in the thrift store, but it doesn’t match? That’s right! Paint it! This cow was too cute to pass up. A fresh coat of white paint, and she is perfect!

5. Indoor Furniture

I have painted beds, dressers, chairs and so many other furniture pieces. I usually paint larger pieces by hand. But if the piece is rattan or wicker, spray paint is so much easier. It can get into all the little spaces better than a brush. I used white spray paint on this rattan table for my living room.

6. Lamps

Again, wicker is so much easier to paint with spray paint. You can also use paint for the base of an outdated table lamp. Put a pretty new shade on it and you are all set.

7. Wooden Signs

I spray painted the background on this sign and then hand painted the letters. This will work for any piece of wood. On the¬†second sign I added chip letters to form the word ‘Laundry.”

8. Planters

I made these planters years ago from a concrete block, but I have also painted regular ceramic or plastic flower pots. Spray paint is great for covering any type of surface!

Recently, mom and I were contacted by a company by the name of Lighting Miami.  It is a company that sells many different kinds of lamps and lighting devices.  And some of their stuff if absolutely beautiful!

There are all kinds of lamps that you can buy depending on what you are looking for.

Like this crystal chandelier for $55,608.

Or if that is a tad out of your price range, you could buy this $10 Winnie the Pooh lamp!

But either way, the lamps are absolutely beautiful!  They have everything that you can think of.  There are table lamps, wall lights, chandeliers, ceiling lights, and outdoor lamps.  There are all sorts of price ranges and so many different styles.

My family has lived in the same house for 23 years (gasp, I know…). ¬†The house was built in the 1950s and sometimes we have to change things up to make it look more modern. ¬†So looking through this website has helped us to find ways to fix up the house to make it fit into our ever changing style.

Here is a beautiful modern chandelier that would look great in our dining room over the farm table.  This Elk chandelier is $612.

How about these cool cube floor lamps from SLV?  Haley wants a few of these in her room.

I love this table lamp from Dimond Lighting! ¬†Wouldn’t it be perfect in my bedroom?

I also really like this outdoor light from Jeremiah Lighting. ¬†It is beautiful, even though it doesn’t really match anything in our outdoor patio…

And finally, for all the motorcycle fans, which we are not, you can buy this hanging light from ELK lighting.
