Krylon Spray Paint

VIDEO: Miss Kris’ Guide To Spray Painting

Miss Kris Spray Paint Hot Pink Chair DIY How ToHot pink chair? YES PLEASE!!!!! I gave this basic chair from IKEA a hot makeover courtesy of a can of Krylon spray paint.  Adding a fresh coat of paint is an easy way to personalize a piece of furniture and make it fit the decor scheme of your home, but I personally hate brush painting projects. I prefer to apply paint with a spay paint, but if applied incorrectly your paint job can look just AWFUL… trust me I’ve butchered many a chair.

DIY: Matte Black Mason Jar

Miss Kris Painted Matte Black Mason Jar DIYI know it’s Spring and we’re susposta be all about color and what not, but I’m currently having a very black and white moment. I’m obsessed bouquets full of white flowers and I think the contrast of a black vase really make the arrangement stand out. So chic! Thankfully because of an intense relationship I had last Summer with mason jars, I have a few laying around. With a coat of paint they can easily be transformed and repurposed to use this Spring. This little project is beyond simple. You can complete the look of a room or the theme of a party in just seconds with these painted jars.

The Bold And The Beautiful: DIY Metallic Gold Glass Apothecary Jar

Miss Kris Gold Bottle and Peonies Pretty in pink. This week during my trip to the Flower Mart in downtown LA I discovered that peonies were back. I’m beyond excited!!!! They’re one of my favorites and their return symbolizes the return of Spring. Now is about the time of year I bring out all my little glass jars, give them a good cleaning and prepare to litter them around my apartment filling them with fresh flowers. Fresh flowers in delicate little glass jars are my daily “treat yo self” moment that always bring a smile to my face.

I love glass jars and their ability to be transformed by adding color.

Miss Kris DIY Glitter N Glue Spray Painted Gold Bottle Flower GLASS JARSI’m quickly becoming a crazy craft lady that collects glass jars of all shapes and sizes… and I’m ok with that! I love finding glass pieces at my local flea markets, but you can easily score these a craft store like Michael’s.

Miss Kris DIY Glitter N Glue Spray Painted Gold Bottle Flower SPRAY I love the way they look clear, but obviously they are extra fab with a little metallic paint. One coat of paint later my bottle is now a bold statement piece.

I’m NOT a fan of those matte black cars I see driving on the streets of Los Angeles (I mean why would you paint your $200,000 Masarati matte black?) but I am a fan of matte back jewelry! Special shout out to GNG reader Noa for also being inspired by matte black and for sharing her inspiration with me! #SharingIsCaring

DIY: Metallic Wood Hangers

Glitter N Glue DIY Spray Paint Metallic Wood HangersSpring is almost here and thus Spring cleaning has begun. First up… my closet! One cannot begin the process of purchasing a new Spring wardrobe until you figure out what you have, what you need, what fits and well.. what doesn’t. While organizing, I felt now is the best time to also give the hangers in my closet a makeover. One key to an organized closet is uniformed hangers. A coat of metallic silver spray paint is sure to give my closet the most glam Spring cleaning yet!

DIY: Metallic Gold Desk Lamp

Glitter N Glue DIY Gold Spray Paint Desk LampThis Sunday Hollywood is throwing a big ole party for a little man named Oscar! Now imagine if the award show was sponsored by Krylon and once an actor won they were handed a boring grey metal statue and a can of metallic gold spray paint. They were then escorted backstage where cameras were set up to capture them actually spray paint their Oscar statue LIVE. Not that would be a show worth watching! LOL

You guys know how I love to take something ordinary and transform it to extraordinary with a few coats of spray paint.  Remember Olly the owl? (Click here if you don’t) He was salvaged from the $1 store and now lives the most fantastic and glamorous life on my shelf. Today it’s time for my boring desk lamp is get a new lease on life.
