20. Update Your Vent Covers
If you have vent covers that look battered and dingy, don’t even think about replacing them when you can spray paint them for about ten bucks! This also works really well for outdated light fixtures. Just visit The Frugal Homemaker to see how it’s done!
21. PVC Pipe Curtain Rods
What a clever idea! Use PVC pipe and spray paint for plastic to make curtain rods for so much less than you could buy them for. Not only that, but you can completely customize them that way, which may come in handy if you have an odd size or an irregular corner. Visit 7 Layer Studio for the instructions (including what she did for the ends).
22. Beautify A Basket
Two Delighted will show you how to use spray paint on baskets to give them a quick update and make them more interesting. I love the metallic silver they chose for this laundry basket! You could also use bright or pastel colors for a kid’s room, or even just a darker brown on old baskets that need a little modernizing.
