Décor on a dime: Spray paint transformations (or what to do with all your newspaper)

Decor on a Dime button
So what do you do with all that newspaper that you get along with the valuable coupons? 
You spread it out on the driveway and have a spray painting party! :)

  Here are some spray painting transformations I have done recently:
I got this table FREE (actually, I got 2!) from someone’s garbage pile. :)  The glass was perfect, just needed some cleaning.  And the brass had to go!
Here it is transformed with some white spray paint.
It now is a perfect little plant stand in a corner in my office at work.
I have this magazine stand for years and the green used to match my decor in my living room.
After a coat of ORB (oil rubbed bronze) spray paint – I LOVE it even more!
Have you transformed anything with spray paint in recent weeks?

    Love the spray paint idea--I use it all the time! Recently, I had to buy some wide curtain rods for the windows in the kids' rooms. Now, I have begun to redo our house in French Country, which CAN be expensive...I bought French-themed borders on Ebay, a wallpaper mural that looks like you are looking out a window of a cafe into a Parisian street, etc...and was on a small budget for those rods. Our oldest was fine with the black wrought-iron look heavy rod I found on clearance...our 14 yr old daughter was NOT. So...for her room, which ISN'T in French Country (sigh), we bought a pewter color spray paint (Krylon.) If I had bought a rod in that brushed nickel finish, I'd have paid a WHOLE lot more--and if she ever changes her mind about the French Country idea, I can always respray it black! Curbside finds, provided they aren't infested with bedbugs, are a great source for items that may need a little sprucing up. A can of spray paint is only a few dollars and can save you a ton of money.'s fun.
