A house isn't a home without putting your own stamp on your surroundings. Although it's easy to start racking up the costs (and time spent) on decor, unique pieces don't always have to hit you where it hurts ... and the ladies at What's Up Moms are geniuses when it comes to great, easy DIYs.
Spray paint is one tool that fits the bill; however, if used improperly, your items could look more cheap than chic. First, check the weather, as too hot or too cold temperatures and high humidity adversely affect the paint. Always start with a clean, dry surface; using primer never hurts either. Take your time and begin application off the object, moving in an even side-to-side motion. The most important tip, though? Keep everything well-ventilated.
