Krylon Spray Paint: Be a Mover and a Shaker

January 25, 2010 | By | Comments (1)

I received an email last week about a new website from Krylon Spray Paint. I'm a huge fan of spray paint—it's easy to use, and covers almost any material you can think of. I've sprayed metal, wood, cardboard, and plastic. And I've had such good results, that spray paint will continue to be my go-to painting method.


The site,, gives project ideas that are meant to help you sell your home. But why not spruce up your space even (or especially) if you're staying put? I would rather be able to enjoy the upgrades to my home instead of doing them just as I'm getting ready to leave.

What's great about the projects on this site is that they give you an idea of which spray paints are appropriate for which surfaces, and the best steps for preparing the each item you'll be spraying. You can find instructions for updating everything from outlet and swtich plate covers (a 30-minute project) to ceiling fans (a 2-hour project) to your porch railings (a 3 to 4-hour project).

Have you ever used spray paint? What kind of project did you do, and how did it turn out?
