You guys. Today (if all goes as planned, which is rarely does, but I digress) we will be homeowners again! We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for our house to be finished, and believe it or not one BIG challenge for this DIY blogger has been not having a yard or garage in which to paint. We’re not allowed to do it at our apartment for obvious reasons, which is challenging when you’re writing a book that requires 40 DIY projects! Needless to say, one of the first things I plan to do when we move grab my paint nozzle and GET GOING.
To peep the behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, follow me on Instagram as I tackle my massive project list AND scare our neighbors with my spray tent and dust mask. 😉 If you’re pumped for spray paint season to start, we’ve rounded up 20 easy transformations to get those creative juices going. In the DIY world, you know it’s spring when the paint sprayers come out!
