Spray Paint Can Make Great Cheap Changes!
by Dana Patterson on May 10, 2012 1
Since we moved, spray paint has become quite popular. Even though I wanted to change the color of some things, I still liked the look. This time around, I changed the trash can, soap dish and tissue box cover in the girls bathroom. I used this spray paint:
Here is the before:
They all still had the price stickers left on them. The trash can was $11.99, soap dish was $4.99 and the tissue box was $8.99. I bought these for my husband (boyfriend at the time) when he was fixing up his college bathroom. I saved ~$22 by spray painting instead of buying new.
Here are some after pics:
Overall, I’m extremely happy with the less than $4 transformation.
Make sure you spray far away from the object. It’s better to do a few coats than one thick one. It will drip! Mine dripped on one side of the trash can and I quickly figured out that slow and steady wins the race.
