One of the things we love most about spray paint is how easy it is to create something fun and whimsical out of something a little plain. Some of our favorite projects involve an inexpensive thrift shop find or something found in the garage. Just add a bit of Plutonium Paint and voila!

Here are a few of our favorite Whimsical DIY Spray Paint Projects. See something you like? Each one has detailed instructions if you click through:

At Charlotte’s House Gumball Machine Spray Paint DIY




Charlotte, from At Charlotte’s House transformed a bright red retro gumball machine to this darling pink one to better match her decor. We love how it doubles as an air planter. She used Plutonium’s Manko on this one, but we think it would also look awesome in Aloha or Vegas. Find out how she did it here.

Another one of our favorite whimsical DIY spray paint project are these thrifted busts, also from At Charlotte’s House. She used Vegan, Truer, Motown, and Lala.

Take a look at these darling little owls from Ambient Wares. She picked these little guys up at a rummage sale for almost nothing. She doesn’t have a tutorial on them because all she did was clean them up a bit, and spray! Seriously, that’s it. She used Limon Cello and Prince.

Jess from Mad in Crafts created these adorable animal bookends. Take a look at how she made these cheap plastic animals look a little “fancy” and ceramic-like. She used both Polar and Hot Sauce for two different sets.

Finally, Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling created these monochromatic flower bouquets using Aloha, Lala, Tsunami, and Submarine. We love the true blue hues but think this would also look great in a purple group using Prince, Fly Girl and Purple Haze.
