Spray Paint Home Decor Makeovers – 3 Cool Ways To Jazz Up Your Home Accessories

I don't know about you, but I have plenty of home accessories that can use a few new coats of paint. Paint can transform a piece drastically, and make it look brand new.  Most of us  have a certain color scheme that we use consistently throughout our homes, and sometimes spray painting a Serving Tray, or an Ornate styled mirror, a Mid Century Modern Cabinet, can add tons of interest to a space.
