31 Days of Spray Paint – Day 14 Upholstery

I could not have predicted that when I took on this 31 day series I would have #1, gotten sick and #2, had one of my busiest weeks ever!  Ok, enough of the excuses, I’m back on track!

Did you know you can spray paint upholstery?  More importantly, did you know you can spray paint upholstery and have it come out beautifully using non-toxic, non-flammable aerosol paint without changing the feel, will not stiffen the fabric and once dry, will not rub off?   Well, you can and here are some inspiring photos to prove it! 







And the product of choice appears to be Simply Spray Fabric Paint



31 Days of Spray Paint – Day 6 Chairs

Everyone has one…that one-off chair; maybe found at the flea-market…maybe handed down from G-ma; however it was acquired, most of us have a cute little “occasional” chair just waiting for attention and a spot in the house.  Grab the spray paint, maybe some fabric – and give it the TLC it’s craving!





31 Days of Spray Paint – Day 5 Pumpkins

We love Halloween in our house and the work and decorations we put into it are only second to Christmas.  I have to admit though, I do not look forward to carving pumpkins; the mess, the sharp knives the effort, it’s something that we usually put off until the last-minute.  This year I’m going to try something different, spray painting them, yes you can spray paint pumpkins and here are some clever, fun, and beautiful creations using spray paint.

Metalic spray paint, gorgeous!

Love the colors

Stencils and spray paint – cute!

Glitter – love!

Ok it’s not spray paint but I had to include these gorgeous pumpkins using drip art technique – click on picture for instructions

Lace and black spray paint

Spider stencils, clever!

Ideas are endless!








31 Days of Spray Paint – Day 3


It’s amazing what spray paint can do to transform and update a lamp.  Lighting can be expensive so before you throw out that lamp, that ugly outdated lamp, try a little spray paint.  You might also try local thrift stores or garage sales, look for beautiful shapes and lines.  I’ve searched the web and here are some of my favorite transformations.

31 Days of Spray Paint – Day 2


I am currently in the middle of collecting old, ornate, flea market/thrift store frames with the intention of creating a beautiful art installation.  I’m going with white but that’s a personal choice.

This is what I have so far

Just found these gems, plan to remove the mirrors

This is my dream installation – although my walls are not white, the sizes and layout is what I’m working towards

Great way to add color, love the blues

Or even better – blues, corals, and white from Theshabbyshak at Etsy

Very sweet

Love the shapes and colors

While I love the emtpy frames; how darling are these white ornate frames with family pics?  source: Brocade Home





I’ve decided to join The Nester in the 31 Days series. She has a wonderful blog and  I’ve been following her for a while now as she creates her “imperfect” home.  I love her mantra “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.”  For the entire month of October, along with her and many other bloggers, I’ll post on my blog everyday.  My subject is dedicated to objects transformed by spray paint.  I love spray paint ; it’s easy, affordable, and can be used on pretty much anything.  My favorite brands are Krylon and Valspar, I always prime first (both Krylon and Valspar have spray primers).  When using spray paint, I generally do it outside on a big sheet or drop cloth or in the garage with doors open.

Day 1 – Spray Paint Glass Bottles

It is so simple and easy to transform glass bottles with spray paint.  First prime and paint any bottle, any color you want.  Check out some of these ideas.  Shop your own home or local thrifts stores and garages sales


Root beer bottles, so cute!

Wine bottles


Love the twine embellishment


Rolled in Epsom salt and then spray painted

Here is my recent project, I found a bunch of oil bottles at Goodwill for .50; I like their shape and love it even more with a number stenciled on it.
