Unusual DIY Paint Projects
After seeing these creative examples, though, you may be grabbing your paint brush and favorite paint to try a project for yourself.
The first example is one that I did when I wanted a new look for my plaid wing back chair but didn’t want to spend the money on re-upholstery. Instead, I simply painted it.
That’s right! It was a special mix of paint and fabric medium and it worked like a charm.
This is the finished chair:
You can see exactly how I finished this chair at my post, How To Paint An Upholstered Chair.
Here are some other examples of unusual diy paint projects that I found:
1. Painted stair runner by Bees Knees Bungalow:
Painting a stair runner allows you to get very creative with the pattern and colors. Your imagination is the limit on the design choices that you could use whereas a carpet runner is very limiting.
2. A painted rug by Cape 27 Blog:
Have you ever searched for just the right area rug only to be bored by the design choices available? Why not just paint your own design on a plain background! It’s not that hard with stencils or tape and the right kind of paint.
3. Stencil painted ceiling by PBJ Stories:
I would not have thought to put a chevron stripe on the ceiling but what a great way to add a lot of interest to a room! This unusual paint project was done by an eight month pregnant woman so it can’t be as difficult as it looks!
