Use spray paint to bring new life to furniture

Use spray paint to bring new life to furniture, and is parquet flooring passé? Plus, the temporary changes you can make to a rental space to make it feel like home.

PAINTED BASKETS


What you need:

- basket (mine is from IKEA)
- paint brush
- acrylic multi-surface paint
- pencil


How To:

1. Draw a pattern on the basket with a pencil. (I used a bowl and pieces of paper to design my pattern)
2. Paint the design and let dry.


BLANKET LADDER


What you need:

- 2 pieces of 2x3 wood, 6 feet long
- 5 pieces of 2x2 wood, each cut to 18 inches long
- 2 pieces of 2x2 wood cut to 11 inches
- measuring tape
- pencil
- wood glue
- screws
- drill
- chalk paint (I used Annie Sloan Old Violet and Old White)
- paint brush
-painter's tape


HOW TO:

1. Place the two 6 foot long pieces on the floor, 18 inches apart.

2. Measure a spot 6 inches from the top and then every 12 inches down each side. Drill a hole in each of those spots.

3. Place the first 2x2 piece (the rung) between those pieces, six inches down from the top (at the first pre-drilled hole). Add wood glue to either end. Use the drill to screw in place on either side. I used a small piece of wood under each side of the rung to raise is slightly off the floor.

4. Repeat with each rung. I used two spare pieces of wood to place between each rung to keep everything straight.

5.Tape the top of the ladder, about 3 inches below the second rung. Paint the top colour.

6. Once dry, tape again and paint the bottom colour.

7. Optional: you may want to secure the ladder to the wall if it is in a high traffic area, or in a home with children.
