Save It with Spray Paint

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

Renew dated or dingy furnishings and color-coordinate everyday objects around the house.

Painted bistro set and accessories.

Corner Cafe

Brighten flea-market finds with a fresh coat of spray paint. No matter the medium -- a wooden planter bowl (Valspar Manhattan Mist Stone), brass chandelier (Valspar Blindfold), or metal bistro set (Valspar White Satin) -- upcycling is fast and easy. Pick a corner for morning coffee, then dress up the space with a fresh wall color (Valspar Tropical Mist, #5002-7A) and a cushy pillow.

Office Space

In tight quarters, carve out room for an office workstation with a sleek work table, then fill out the space with long-lost attic treasures and throw-back garage sale bargains. Make them all work together in a couple of hours with a few shades of spray paint (chair, Valspar Tropical Oasis; magazine holders, Rust-Oleum Pure Gold; file drawers, Valspar Azure Snow; and globe, Valspar black chalkboard).

Spray-painted nightstand and headboard.

Colorful Quarters

Give your bedroom a done-in-a-day makeover with inexpensive accessories from a thrift store. Spiff them up with coats of rich color (lamp, Valspar Brilliant Metal Gold; nightstand, Valspar Blindfold). Then add a fun dash of bright gloss (Valspar Tropical Oasis) to your headboard for a fresh focal point.

Bronze Age

Take a dining room chandelier from dated to divine with Rust-Oleum Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint. Take the fixture down, if possible. Protect the lightbulb stems with painter’s tape, apply several light coats, and let dry. Remove the tape and reinstall.

Some spray paints are formulated for specific materials. Check the labels. (Valspar Brilliant Metal Gold shown.)

Spray-paint ceramics.

Paint Ceramics

Finishes come in a range of sheens from flat to gloss. Gloss is more moisture-resistant, but it shows fingerprints and other marks more easily. Satin (Koi Pond shown) helps conceal surface imperfections.

Glass light shade coated with spray frosting.

Paint Glass

Clean the surface thoroughly -- even glass -- to increase the paint’s ability to stick. This light shade was transformed using Valspar Glass Frosting Spray.

Painted metal numbers.

Paint Metal

Spray paint can imitate metal finishes such as silver, bronze, and hammered copper, as with these battered metal numbers wearing Rust-Oleum Hammered Copper.

Spray-painted mirror frame.

Paint Plastic

Spray paint is a smart choice for painting surfaces with lots of unusual shapes and recesses where a brush can’t reach. (Valspar Tropical Oasis shown.)

Table painted white satin.

Paint Wood Furniture

Remove hardware from furniture before painting -- it’s often easier than masking with painter’s tape. (Valspar White Satin shown.)
