Today we want to share with you some great DIY spray paint project ideas. We're showing off thrift store makeovers our friends have mastered. All of these projects simply require a can of spray paint and an item that needs a little TLC.
Some spray paint projects are simple and give an old piece, new life. Others can create a whole new look and creation for an item. Home decor is only limited by your imagination. Let's jump in and see what our creative friends came up with.

SPRAY PAINTED CHANDELIER MAKEOVER
Robert & Lauren, over at Bless'er House, gave a new look to a brushed nickel chandelier.
A simple coat of spray paint primer and another of metallic gold spray paint and you end up with a breathtaking piece!
Hop over to the chandelier makeover project to see the complete transformation.
SPRAY PAINTED EXTERIOR LIGHT
The exterior light transformation is a project that Jennifer, from The Craft Patch, did. She took the light down and apart as the first step.
From brass to bronze, this is the perfect money-saving DIY project for your home.
DOOR KNOB SPRAY PAINT TRANSFORMATION
If you have brass doorknobs and would like to give them a new look, Renovated Faith has the solution for you.
In a blog post, Karin shows how to remove, sand and spray paint your doorknobs, and other hardware and then what things look like once they are put back together.
Talk about a great transformation!
SPRAY PAINTING THRIFT STORE PLATES
Have you ever thought about spray painting plates that you picked up at a yard sale or thrift store? This is such a great way to create a stunning display.
Courtenay, from The Creek Line House, gives step by step directions on how to tackle this project.
The plates aren't meant to be new dinnerware, but depending on what you find, you might have some great new fall decorations like these adorable leaves of Courtenay's.
DIY FARMHOUSE PITCHER MAKEOVER WITH SPRAY PAINT
Chelsea & Logan, over at Making Manzanita, scored a couple of farmhouse style pitchers at the thrift store. They weren't the color they wanted, so they decided to give them a fresh coat of white spray paint.
It's simple to decorate with a farmhouse feel when you have a can of spray paint.
FAUX MILK GLASS SPRAY PAINT EFFECT
If you're like us, you love the look of milk glass. When at thrift shops or garage sales you probably have seen a thousand plain glass vases and passed them right by.
Larissa, from the blog Prodigal Pieces, shows how to give these simple glass vases a pretty faux milk glass spray paint look.
Once you see how, you'll be on a hunt for more glass vases.
NEW SPRAY PAINT JOB FOR A VINTAGE FARM TRUCK
This vintage farm truck was given a new lease on life with a can of spray paint. The before and after shot on Elkee Stewart Home's Instagram page is inspiring.
What a great farmhouse decor piece!
SPRAY PAINT A BICYCLE WHEEL AND MAKE A WREATH
This bicycle wreath is a project we did. Our, DIY Fall Bicycle Wreath, gives all of the steps to creating this beauty. From removing it from the bike, to spray paint, adding flowers and hanging it on the door.
If you're looking for an out of the box kind of project to do, this is so much fun.
BENCH REFRESH SPRAY PAINT MAKEOVER
This bench in its first life was a twin bed. Someone turned it into a bench and once we got our hands on it, we did a little work restoring it.
We used a paint sprayer on this project, which is another way to spray paint.
See more photos of this bench refresh project to see what's different about this spray paint technique.
DIY SPRAY PAINT GOLD PLASTIC HANGERS
If you're looking for some closet makeover hacks, Mimi, from Unlikely Marthy, has some great ones to offer.
The major tip is the transformation of these plastic hangers. Some gold spray paint gives them a sophisticated look.
CHRISTMAS VILLAGE MAKEOVER WITH SPRAY PAINT
Pauline, over at Vintage Love 13, took a little vaseline and painted areas what she didn't want to paint and then spray painted this Christmas village.
You might already have a village at home. This is a great idea to give a new look to a tired village.
UPCYCLED SPRAY PAINTED LIFE SIZE NUTCRACKER
At Christmas, we showed you how we took old closet doors and gave them new lives as life-sized nutcrackers.
Painters tape and kraft paper were our friends as these nutcrackers took shape.
It's so much fun to take an everyday object and make a new creation out of it.
