One question that I’ve been asked quite often is “what’s your best design tool”? This is a pretty loaded question since there are a lot of different things that go into designing and decorating a room. It could be my upholsterer who can transform a piece of furniture or my painter who can breathe life into a space with a simple coat of paint.
As an interior designer I have access to a wide variety of tools and a range of exclusive furniture, accessories and home decor items that I can pull from to design a space.
Having access to exclusive items is wonderful but sometimes the best design tool is something simple that doesn’t cost a lot of money, is easy to access and can yields high-end results in a flash.
Sometimes the best design tool you can have is a can of spray paint~
I’ve used spray paint a lot over the last few years when creating diy projects and I’m always amazed at how spray paint can transform a piece of furniture, hardware, textiles or decorative objects.
If you don’t realize the power of paint, here are 10 creative uses to transform your home with a can of spray paint.
#1 Give an old lamp a new look with paint!
# 2 Paint old books to unify a collection for a tabletop display or bookcase arrangement.
#3 Modernize hardware around your house!
#4 Create custom window treatments for any room in your home.
#5 Update old curtain rods to match your new decor.
#6 Create a custom rug to work with your design style.
#7 Turn inexpensive decorative elements into stunning statement pieces.
#8 Give aged fabric a new life!
#9 Give worn vent cover a fresh new look.
# 10 Take a vintage tub and transform it into a design statement.
#11 Personalize your decor to fit your style.
Amazing right? Spray paint is definitely one of the best design tools you have at your disposal.
