I’ve been spray painting for over a decade now. I’ve gone through a lot of cans of spray paint, and I am a little embarrassed to admit how many cans I have sitting in my basement right now. I may be (somewhat obsessed), but I’m grateful for whoever invented spray paint. It’s the easiest and most inexpensive way to repurpose something. I know chalk paint is really popular now, and I do love using chalk paint. However, I still can’t seem to put that spray can down. It’s wonderful for nap time. I can accomplish so much in that little window of my day where I am kid-free. It’s great for those of us who tire of keeping the same home decor colors. I wish I had documented my house just one year ago. It was filled with pops of (celery) green. I had green accents everywhere. Now, like everyone else, I’m finding myself loving more gray tones. I found the most beautiful color of spray paint. It’s Rust-oleum’s 7720 Sage.
When used, it almost becomes more a a grayish blue/green – I’m not sure “Sage” is an appropriate name. I LOVE it. As I was walking around my house today, I noticed I had this new color accenting rooms all over my house.
I use it on frames:
I use it on furniture:
(*And note on how I was able to easily distress the piece on the left with an electric sander.)
I use it on mirrors:
I use it on random items:
I even use it on my purse:
No, not really. Apparently I really am obsessed with this color…
It is amazing how beautiful your results with spray paint can be. Go grab a can of spray paint and reinvent something!
p.s. I really wish I had documented these projects with before pics so you could see the transformation. I’ll do so in the future!
