How To: Spray Paint Like a Pro

I just went into my basement and counted. The results?

I have twenty-eight cans of spray paint. Okay, that also includes spray primer, and probably a clear coat or two, but twentyeight? I was surprised.

So, what’s it mean? That spray paint is awesome, and the perfect medium for all sorts of DIY and art projects, of course!

In building my collection, I’ve definitely learned a few things over the years, like these Krylon spray handles are totally amazing and the best $3.00 DIY bargain I know of.

But I’m always interested in learning more, and so I’m loving this article by Kate Wangsgard on Apartment Therapy. “Spray paint is an easy and affordable way to spruce up something you already have or transform a cheap craigslist find. You can spray paint pretty much anything; but a seemingly simple spray paint project can quickly go south if done poorly. Drips, crackling and uneven coverage are all common problems that can be avoided if you take your time and know what you’re doing.”
