Spray paint is one of the greatest fixer-upper products in the decorating industry. With a simple can of spray paint, you can turn an item destined for the trash bin into something that looks new again. But this product isn’t just for fix-ups. It also can add a lot of color, style and pizzazz to your home spaces. Below are some ideas to help you transform everyday objects into works of art.
Decorating trends ebb and flow year after year. However, some trends, for a variety of reasons, have more staying power.
