Painted Projects For Home Decor

You can transform about anything with paint.  That is probably why about a third of my craft supplies are some kind of paint.

So…before you throw out……ANYTHING, throw a little paint on it and be amazed at the new look and life you can give it.  I even painted an upholstered chair before and saved a bunch of money on reupholstery.  You can check out that project at How To Paint An Upholstered Chair.

Of course wooden furniture is something that can always be painted as well.  If you are interested in seeing those kinds of projects, check out my Furniture Makeover’s category located on the sidebar.

However, today’s post is concentrating on smaller painted projects to accessorize home decor.

Here are some fun ones you might want to try:

Painted mason jar holder by Burton Avenue

I have seen these mason jar wall holders before which are very handy for organization.  But, when you paint a label on it, there is no question to what it is to be used for.  This one was made to hang in a laundry room!  See all of the details at Burton Avenue on how to make your own.
