Tackle your home to-do list in no time with spray paint
(NC) We all have home improvement projects on our to-do list, but when will we ever get them done? If you are time-strapped as well, take a look at the advanced technology now in spray paints.
Leading company, Krylon, for example, points to its ColorMaster brand with the durable 'Covermax' technology. It is specifically formulated to give you cleaner, crisper hues, with more brilliant colour, plus a smooth, durable finish. From household décor to patio furniture and lawn accessories, this spray paint will allow you to accomplish all your home improvement tasks in style.
Canning Jar Creations
Do you have mismatched jars cluttering your cupboards or attics? Fortunately, Mason jars are the ideal size to create anything from a flower vase, an herb garden or desktop organizer, and the raised outer design adds a touch of whimsy and nostalgia. With just a bit of spray paint, your clutter can be transformed into a clever creation.
After thoroughly cleaning the jars, simply spray several light coats onto the jars using your favourite shades of Krylon ColorMaster spray paint. It dries in just 10 minutes and is available in nearly 100 brilliant colours and finishes. Once dry, you now have a beautiful new vessel to hold anything from plants to pencils.
Terracotta Potted Plant House Numbers
Why settle for “ho hum” house numbers? Instead convert ceramic or terra cotta pots into an eye-catching address marker with creative curb appeal.
To start, be sure that each pot has a clean and smooth surface. Next, apply primer to the surface and allow to dry, using a white primer for light colours and a gray primer for dark colours. Next, paint each pot in a different colour of spray paint and let dry. Finally, place a stencil for each house number on the center of each pot and spray with a light coat of paint. Arrange your pots in the proper order, fill with flowers and voila… you now have an original and welcoming way to announce your address.
Does your headboard need help? Luckily, paint can take any piece of furniture from blah to beautiful. So instead of replacing your old headboard, rejuvenate it.
Start by sanding and cleaning to ensure you have a solid surface. Next apply primer. Once dry, spray the headboard in your favourite colour of spray paint. And don't limit yourself to just one colour. You can use painter's tape to cover different areas to create a multi-colour surface – or add embellishments, such as stencils. The opportunities are endless.
With a bit of creativity and a few hours, you can spray your way through your DIY to-do list. More information is available online at krylon.ca.
