DIY Spray Paint: Spruce Up Your Space With Just Spray Paint

It’s a new year, so that means it’s time for a refreshed living space! You’d be surprised at how some spring-cleaning or sprucing up can drastically change your mood! I mean, don’t we all get that inspired and invigorated feeling by looking at a space or that reflects your personal aesthetic?

In this blog post, we introduce a very cost-effective way to spruce up your space, be it the study or the bedroom: Spray-Painting!

We spray paint a couple of everyday items to give your room a more decorated appeal. Most of the items in this blog post can be found in Daiso, Muji, and IKEA, and costs about $3-4 on average (minus the clothing rack from IKEA). Why spray-paint you might ask? It dries fast, provides a smooth finish and saves time!

Before starting, think about a theme or a colour scheme you would like to go for. We opted for feminine hues like rose gold, bronze and gold.

If you prefer a vibrant or bold effect, go for complementary colours (i.e. Red & Green, or Blue & Yellow). Use the colour wheel as a guide.

Masking tape, newspapers, spray paint, plastic table cloth, plastic gloves

Before starting, make sure to cover wherever you’re painting with newspapers. Have a 10-15cm space between the object and the spray can to ensure an even coating. Leave to dry once you get a pigmented layer. Once dry, repeat spraying process till desired colour comes through.

Add personal touches to your study by including photographs or memorabilia like concert tickets. Use your coffee table books/magazines for decor too.

We hope this blog post was useful in helping you think of ways to elevate your space! Spray-painting is affordable – a can of paint costs less than $10, and you can paint existing items you own – and can be a fun weekend project with your siblings, friends or loved ones!
