8 Things You Can Buy At Salvos Stores That Can Be Refreshed With Spray Paint


Spray paint. The lazy upcycler’s best friend. What can’t a can spray paint achieve? We have no idea. . .

1. Block colour figurines

Love the shape of an ornament at Salvos Stores but not keen on the details? Spray them with a couple layers of spray paint for a simple modern ornament! These bright colours would be brilliant for a kids room but neutrals and metallics would look perfect for the grown ups.

2. Light up an old lamp

Spray paint a ceramic vintage table lamp to match your bedroom perfectly. Depending on the details you could have different coloured trims or if you’re crafty add a few stripes in.
