Spray-Paint Mismatched Chairs

Whether they’re wood or metal, mismatched dining chairs suddenly belong together when given a fresh coat of paint. Spray-painting is a quick and easy way to create a uniform look with a statement color (Valspar Luscious Green shown).

Beautify a Buffet

Bring new life to an old buffet by brushing on chalky-finish paint. This fast, inexpensive and no-stress technique revives furniture with a chic matte finish. Then top the buffet with watercolor-look glass vases you can create yourself. Simply dunk each vase (or other glass object) into a layer of spray paint floating on water. It’s a true custom design—every dunking produces a unique pattern.
