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.
12. Mirrored Gazing Garden Ball
Mirrored balls are a unique way to add character to your yard or garden, and the mirror effect can also make it look larger. I think these would be really charming resting in a flower bed as part of the landscape! To make your own gazing ball, you can find used bowling balls at thrift stores and spray them with a mirror-like spray paint. Just be sure the holes are face down so that they aren’t visible. You can find more details on this here, although I would suggest cleaning the ball really well to remove all of the oils and residue before spray painting.
