8 Fun and Easy Spray Paint Projects

8 Fun and Easy Spray Paint Projects



Take your bow.

We  proved that spray paint is taking over the world.

We sprayed pumpkins and chairs and desks and bookcases and flowers and baskets and even a chandelier or two.

There were so many amazing entries that inspired us and impressed us and overwhelmed us and made us never want to pick up a brush again and to move all of our life savings into spray paint company stock.


Here were a few of our favorite entries.  Eight fun and easy spray paint projects.

  1. PLEASE, no offense to the winners, but the first 4 projects shown as ‘favorites’ should be the winners, or did i read something incorrectly????

  2. WOW, it must have been hard picking the winners. These were all so wonderful and now I am thinking I may become the fastest spray painter in the state of Kentucky.


  3. Karianne, I love your disclosure. It cracks me up actually. I am sure Krylon would love to have paid you to proclaim that spray paint was taking ove r the world, and some marketing guy is sitting there going “Man! Why DIDN”T we think of paying her to say that?”

    I too have been afflicted with spray paint fever, but i didn’t enter simplyt becuase I never pay attention ti what brand I buy. I go for color, rather than brand. Although I have used my share of Krylon. Plus it’s barn sale season. I run one for a weekend in Nov and I am right at crunch time. Maybe next year, I’ll hit you and your creative buddies up for some product to sell.

  4. They are all great projects, but I think my favorite is the Swiss Army Knife basket!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. These are such great projects and I LOVE that it’s become the culture to make something over rather than throw it away and buy new. Oh the power of paint!

  6. I loved joining the spray paint project….and you are right…spray painting is taking over the world and also my grass in which I certainly “left my mark”…..so many wonderful projects….Thanks Kari!!….

  13. Black & white spray paint are truly the two items that can transform anything. Great ideas and I love seeing other peoples work, too!

  14. Wow, these are all gorgeous transformations! Thanks for sharing.

  15. These are fantastic tranformations. I love the window/mirror and the chandelier. Tough to pick a winner.

  21. Great features! Love me some spray paint, …wonderful, wonderful stuff! And I love to see what others create with it!

    Were you the one who went on the “longest yard sale,” and one of the things on your “bucket list” was a vintage shoe form/stretcher? If so, let me know, I can help a blogging sista out! Ran across one in my junkin’ at a yard sale, and wanted to pass it along when I narrow down who was looking for one! 🙂 ~Rhonda

  22. Marnita Parry :
