I’m thrilled to feature the second guest blog from they talented and crafty Jenny Dixon! Last month, she taught us about DIY Yarn Letters, and today she’s sharing her tips and tricks for mastering spray painting – enjoy!




Spray paint is an easy and inexpensive way to add pops of color to your decor. Scavenge through the aisles of your local thrift stores in search of diamonds in the rough.

Lay out newspaper and place items face up. Hold spray paint can about 12 inches away and use a fluid back and forth motion to cover evenly. Let dry in a well-ventilated area for about 20-30 minutes and then add another coat of paint. When completely dry, flip over and repeat.

Have fun arranging your new finds on bookshelves, coffee tables, or anywhere that needs a splash of unexpected color!
