4. DIY Mercury Glass
Mercury glass is on it’s way to being more popular than bacon and mustaches, and I can definitely see why it is so beloved! But, unfortunately, it’s also pricey. I’m seeing mercury glass on everything from ornaments to lamps, but who would have guessed that there is a mirror effect spray paint that makes this an easy DIY project even for craft-challenged folks to make their very own mercury glass!
I especially like this idea for an old vase (probably because I have a dozen of them tucked away in a closet just begging to get used). Go check out Amanda’s simple instructions for this over at Hammer & Heels!
***Tip*** I’ve also seen this project done by first misting an equal mixture of vinegar and water on the glass before spray painting it if you want more splotches in the final effect.
5. DIY “Industrial” Wire Baskets
Wire baskets look so pretty on a wall or on a countertop to organize your mail, kitchen bottles, or other small items, and I’ll bet you’ve never thought of spray painting the cheapo baskets to look modern and stylish!
See how it’s done and where to buy these baskets over at A House Full Of Sunshine.
6. DIY Copper Tin Cans
Hard to believe you can transform tin cans into something as pretty as these! And, the chalkboard labels are the perfect finishing touch.
Go check out this project and all of the details over at HOMEY Oh My! Amy will show you which paint gave her that perfect copper color.
7. Painted Pinecones
This is a simple idea with a lot of pizzazz! And, if you happen to have a few pine trees in your neighborhood, the only expense is spray paint. I also like the idea of using a glitter spray paint on these for the holidays.

8. Refurbished Furniture Cushions
Hard to believe you can spray paint fabric, and then there is also the question of how long it will last, does it rub off on clothes, and does it smell, but I’ve heard great things about the results!
You can see the instructions and tips for this project over at The Happier Homemaker, and Melissa also provides a link where you can purchase the paint.
9. Magnetic Letter Remodel
Remember these magnetic letters?! They were my favorite growing up, and I’m sure my mother just adored the bright letters all over the fridge. To fancy them up a bit, consider spray painting them in a metallic color. This way you can have a more adult-looking fridge or even magnetic wall for inspirational quotes or reminders. Go check out the instructions over at Inspired by Charm!
10. Painted Branch Decor
This project is a great way to bring a little bit of nature indoors but with your own decorative touch. I really like the metallic idea, but a snow spray would also be really pretty for Christmas in addition to the shiny metallics. Get more details and pictures for this project over at Popsugar.
11. DIY Spray Paint Wall Art
Don’t you just LOVE this idea!? The possibilities are endless– feathers, flowers, stencil letters, etc. For a large wall, you could make 4 spray painted canvases, all with a similar theme but in different colors. Go check it out over at Simply Real Moms.
