Creative Ways to Use Spray Paint

Creative Ways to Use Spray Paint
If you’re anything like me, you love when you can add or change something in your house. One of my favorite tools to make that change is a can of spray paint. There are so many things you can do with spray paint. In fact, we might be here until next year if I ramble about the uses of spray paint. I like to repurpose and refurbish things I find at the thrift store. Not only do you find some real hidden gems thrifting, it’s guaranteed not to break the bank. The dollar store is another place I can find things for cheap that I can repurpose and refurbish. Below I will share my favorite repurposing projects. I hope it inspires you!

DIY Silver and Gold Magnets

This project is so easy I’m certain you will wonder why you haven’t done this already. Grab a bag of plastic alphabet letters that you would throw on your fridge for the kiddos. Slap a coat of silver or gold spray paint on them and voila! This project could not be easier.

Picture Frames

Picture frames are another great item for spray paint. There is no easier way to make a mismatched gallery wall cohesive than with spray paint. Go to your local thrift store or dollar store and you can score some really unique and vintage frames for cheap. You can spray these a funky color or keep them really simple with a classic white spray paint. The frames will flow together and it will give a completely fresh look to your space.

Accessorize It

One of my favorite ways to use spray paint is on small accessories. You can almost always find something in the thrift store that meets this criteria. The beauty of thrifting random accessories at the thrift store is none of it has to match. Just look for stuff that has great shape. Again, a classic white works great with random pieces from the thrift store. Vases and candle sticks are two great accessories here.

These were some of my favorite uses for spray paint. Like I said, if I listed all the uses, we would be here until next year. What are some of your favorite uses for spray paint?

What’s a Security System…How Does it Work?

What Is A Home Security System And How It Works?
is a group of equipment set up in a way to find and stop any unwanted access to your property. Home security systems can be used in homes of all sizes to protect against theft. The home security system can also protect the individuals inside the home from any harm while they’re at home.

There is more than one kind of
system that needs to be installed in your home in order for you and your family to be fully protected. Security systems can be set up for fire detection and smoke build up that can work on protecting the family from accidents that can occur inside the home, while there are other security systems that work best to detect any intrusions in your home, and begin the process of alerting the authorities before any harm is done to you or your family.

What is a home security system? The basic definition of a home security is securing the home. Home security systems always come with a set of equipment that work together to provide the ultimate protection. The equipment include:

  • A control system which is used to control the functions of each equipment and set timers and activation hours.
  • Window Sensors.
  • Motion Sensors
  • Door Senors.
  • Security Cameras.
  • Alarm or Siren.
  • A sign in front of the home warning to keep the burglars away.

How does an ADT security system work? The job of the home security system is to only allow certain individuals to a property only if they have the required access codes. If anybody even tries to forcefully enter the home, all the alarms will automatically be tripped off causing the entire neighborhood to hear the loud sirens and alert the police. Home security systems also alert the authorities automatically if any sensors are activated. There are sensors on all the doors and windows including windows that aren’t accessible.

After securing the entire home with sensors, cameras are set up monitoring every inch of the home inside and out. That allows the home owner to review all the tapes and check for any stolen items. That also gives the owner a playback of any suspicious activities that take place in front of their home. In addition to the sensors and the cameras, new locks are installed to provide the most protection for everyone inside the home.

The entire
system can be controlled by the control panel. Turning the security on and off can be done through the control panel which is why it is very important to keep it out of anyone’s reach and sight.

Sprucing Up the Place for Cheap

Sprucing Up Your Space For Cheap

With spring right around the corner, if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably got the itch to redecorate a room or a space in your house. Maybe it’s as simple as adding a fresh coat of paint onto the walls or adding new accessories that will give the room a pop of color. No matter what type of changes you decide to make, know that it doesn’t have to break the bank. In fact, giving your home a facelift does not have to be expensive – there are plenty of things you can do so that a space in your home is left looking refreshed and full of life! Here are some ways you might be able to make those updates to your home without taking a deep dive into your wallet.

Play with Pillows

Pillows can add just the right amount of color to a room, can be changed with the season or suit the latest design trends. While buying new throw pillows can get expensive, using pillow covers is a great alternative. Use pillow forms or pillows from your local thrift store and cover them with bright and fun pillow covers. You can usually find them at many home stores or even online, and usually for pretty cheap.

Frames, Frames, Frames

Who doesn’t love putting pretty pictures in frames? Spruce up your wall d├ęcor by collecting frames from the thrift store to design a gallery wall. Spray painting mismatched frames will create a cohesive look that is both interesting and unique. Fill the frames with black and white family photos or even various pieces of scrapbook paper for a fresh feel.

Change the Curtains

This one might sound like a no-brainer but it’s a great way to change the feel of a room. You can almost also find curtain panels for cheap at home stores or use your own material from a fabric store. You may also want to consider steering away from traditional curtain fabric and looking into alternatives such as burlap or drop cloths from your local hardware store. You don’t even have to replace the curtains to make the change. Use ribbon or curtain holders to tie them back, changing the feel of the curtain and allowing more light into your room.

There are plenty of options to modernize your space. Explore and see how creative you can be!
