Materials for this projects:
- Painters tape
- Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint (purchased on sale @ Hobby Lobby-LOVE!!)
- Clorox wipes (to give a good cleaning before painting)
- Plastic sheeting (to put on floor as a protectant)
- Wall paint (okay...I didn't tape off "quite enough" and some of the spray paint got on wall so my wonderful husband did touch up...as usual he came in and put the finishing touches on the project...I guess that is why we are such a good team!!)
Honestly, this was such an easy project (most of my projects are...have you noticed?). However, I LOVE the difference!!! If you try this at home...be careful when cleaning...those edges are sharp, and I sliced my fingers...not once, not twice...but THREE times!!! Here are the super easy directions:
- Clean the vent. I'll also say here that I left my old filter in (it was time for a change) so that it would catch the spray paint from going into the vent area. Then, after I was finished, I simply changed the filter.
- Tape several rows of painters tape around the vent to protect wall from spray paint.
- Paint several light coats of paint. I believe I painted 3. The third coat was just a few touch ups. You want to do light coats in order to prevent dripping, etc.
- After paint is dry, remove painters tape. Then, have your husband (just kidding...you can do touch ups...I was just SO LUCKY) touch up wall paint if necessary.
Here is a picture of the vent after I taped it off; before I began painting:
And, then my new vent:
I was so happy with the results...and it was one of those projects that didn't drag on forever. Immediate results! Cheap, easy, fast results! I've seen several ideas to change the look of the vents (some very expensive, some not as expensive...but this worked for me)...what do you think? Are you inspired?
Would love to know what you think...hope you are having a blessed week!
