Rust-Oleum UltraCover 2X spray paint is not your regular spray paint. Rust-Oleum takes the pain out of painting and is a cost effective way of creatively renovating a wide variety of objects to decorate and refresh a bedroom for a little girl. We teamed up with Plascon Double Velvet for a total refreshed look for any little girl's bedroom.
I have had a lot of compliments on the console table since making the project earlier this year for Easy DIY magazine. I think more than everything else it's the paint finish. The Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover 2X spray finish is gloss apple red, but the high-gloss shine looks like a lacquer finish and it what makes all the difference to this project.
You know I love Rust-Oleum spray paint. I have used it for so many projects here on Home-Dzine. Rust-Oleum is not your average spray paint, far from it, and you need to grab a can or two from your local Builders Warehouse to give it at try and see for yourself. Here are some projects that use Rust-Oleum spray paint to get those creative juices flowing...
At our DIY Divas upholstered ottoman workshop yesterday we were discussed recycling. One of the ladies (thanks Bettina!) mentioned how to make party favours using the base of a plastic bottle. Not quite understanding what she meant, I experimented with different ways and lo and behold, you can make fantastic party favour containers with a plastic bottle. Here's how...
Add a soft, elegant metallic finish to wood, metal, plaster, masonry, ceramic or wicker. The durable formula provides lasting luster when applied to surfaces and provides a gilded effect to mirror and picture frames, decor accessories, and even architectural details.
I have no idea where the inspiration for this candy stand came from... I have a pile of cut plastic bottles that I regularly play with to think up ideas to use them, and this one just popped into my head. I think it would be perfect for a party table or special occasion, and could be used to display sweets or snacks.
My latest endeavor to repurpose plastic bottles uses juice bottles - the square type - but you can use any size or shape of plastic bottles for this project. In fact, the more varied your plant containers - the nicer the overall effect when they are all placed together.

I have these plastic blinds in my kitchen. They're great because they are easy to keep clean - I pop them into the bathtub with some handy andy to soak and then rinse them clean. But over time they do become dull and grungy and rather than replace them I decided to see how they would look with some spray paint.
I like shopping on the cheap... visiting wholesale or discount stores that offer glassware and decor at low cost, that you can do up to fit in with your decor style.

Have been loving this chevron pattern for some time now and still haven't seen any nice fabric in the shops.

It doesn't take much for me to find ways to use spray paint. Having previously tried my hand using an artist's spray gun, I found it fun to grab a couple of cans of Rust-Oleum for my 3-seasons apple tree art. This art signifies spring, summer and autumn. I would have added winter but didn't have enough room on the wall!
I am busy putting together a project booklet for Rust-Oleum that shows a variety of ways to use the many Rust-Oleum products. The coastal-style decor project came out really well and I thought I would share a few elements with you.
