If you know me or are familiar with my blog then you will know that I often take the quick and easy option. And one of my favourite ways to spruce things up and give them a new lease of life is to grab a can of spray paint.
It’s amazing the things you can do and how you can revamp your old stuff with a few coats of good old spray paint.
I was surfing the other day and I realised just how versatile it is and how many cool transformations you can find on the internet. I have filtered through lots of fun projects and rounded up 20 of my favourites to share with you guys.
