My DIY Finds... Paint just about Anything.

Wallpaper Stencil

Have you ever thought about trying wallpaper, but didn't have the money in your design budget. Here's a fun DIY trick for you, try using a stencil. Find a stencil that you would like to use. Put on your creative hat and stencil your heart out. Use random patterns on the wall to create a wallpaper effect that's not only beautiful but also affordable.

Painted Rugs

Rugs are one of those must have items when decorating an interior space. They help bring the space to life, and in some cases bring pain to your wallet if you want a really nice one. Team DIY has come up with a great way to save you some cash without skimming on style. Here they have recycled scrap linoleum flooring and turned it into a new stylish rug. Using the side of the tile without the pattern a few coats of paint and a funky design you can create your own custom rug for a low cost. This technique can also be used on hard wood floors.

Painted Fabric

Fun, Fun, Fun. If you are working with fabric that just seems to be bland and lifeless a little paint may just be the boost that it needs. With fabric paint or acrylic paint you can turn pillows, curtains, and table linens into show stoppers. Stencils can be used to create a more dramatic effect or free style with a free hand pattern of your own. 

Painted Glass

I've never painted glass before, really never had a reason to. After seeing this photo I think I'm going to try it. If you like this project and want to try it there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Painting glass is different compared to painting paper or wood. The surface should be clean, and dry. The inside of the glass should be taped off if it is not to be painted. Glass paint should e used and applied in thin layers with an artist brush to achieve the best results.
