Since I am truly a serial re-decorator, I need to find inexpensive ways to make changes.
Once we finished our fireplace makeover a couple weeks ago, the brown dull paint didn’t look good so I decided to purchase black satin high heat enamel that I found at Home Depot.I also have many Spray Painting Tips before you start. If you spray paint a lot, get a big box that will accommodate all sizes. I used foam and a Popsicle stick to hold this clock top up.This way you can move the piece easily by picking up the foam and not the actual object to turn it around so that you get all sides equally covered with spray paint.*Update: Here is how I updated the chairs with some bright spray paint. I was going to spray paint it outside since I have been banned from spray painting in the garage since I unintentionally spray painted our cars, but I didn’t want any bugs to land on it while it dried as well as it looked like rain.The hardest part of the project was taking the light down and putting it back up. I ended up setting up a spray booth in my basement using a big box I got in the dumpster behind my local dollar store. I have been a little too cavalier in my spray painting ways –no more over-spray on surrounding objects – like cars. Here is a mini version of a simple spray painting booth – actually a box, but that is what we called it in display – a spray booth. If your object doesn’t have a flat bottom, use toothpicks, Popsicle sticks, whatever to raise it up so that you can easy move the piece your spraying without actually touching it.
