Do your vent covers looks a little like this? Yuck! Besides needing to be cleaned, this one has seen better days.
I was dreaming of Oil Rubbed Bronze vent covers, BUT on a budget! Welcome my favorite friend, Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint!
I had 7 in-floor vent covers downstairs. I took them all out, washed them, and laid them outside to dry.
Then the painting began…
I did 2 light coats and that seemed to cover them great! I was spray painting several other things as well, but not including drying time this project took less than 30 minutes. And I didn’t even use a whole can of spray paint, so this project cost less than $3.00!
(While they were drying, I vacuumed out all of the vents! Yuck! I think some of this dirt was from the previous owners!)
So here are all 7 vents before and after!
Living room #1
Living room vent #2
Obviously my cat is liking them too, or maybe he is just enjoying the window being open! :)
Yucky kitchen vent #1
After! (The best transformation of all! This vent looks 200% better!)
Kitchen vent #2
(Ignore the gaps between the tile and baseboard. I need to re-install the molding around the baseboards. :( It is on my monstrous house to-do list.)
Dining room vent
Amazing what a little spray paint can do! Even though they weren’t bad and brassy, I am liking the ORB change! :)
What have you been spray painting this Spring?
