Just starting out in the DIY world?

Picking a spray paint project is the perfect way to get started. With these spray paint projects, you’ll be able to completely transform something, AND it’s a lot easier than you think!

Some tips to keep in mind before starting any spray paint project:

  • Prep the surface by cleaning it properly. You want a smooth, clean surface. If not, you’ll be able to see imperfections in the final product.
  • Rather than applying one heavy coat of paint, apply the paint in multiple, light layers so you don’t end up with dripping.
  • Always allow your project pieces to dry completely. Be patient to avoid fingerprints or scratches.
