Thrift Store Decor White Spray Paint Makeover

I seem to be doing a lot of easy makeovers these days. But really, there are so many thrifty finds or junk treasures that just need a coat of spray paint. Spray painting is easy.

Gold is making a come back. Have you guys noticed that? I’m talking about gold dots and gold stripes and modern designs. Not these wall plaques.

It took me less than 5 minutes to give them a good coat of white spray paint.

Then a little light distressing on the details.

I didn’t distress the ladies but I might go back and do that.

I plan to sell the newly painted plaques in my booth. I hung them on our dining room wall to take photos and I may just leave them there a while. They look nice.

These fruit plates were hanging in that spot. I love the vintage plates too. Maybe I will keep both and switch them out occasionally. Which do you like the best?

  1. Spray paint is a cure-all! I like how your ladies turned out – the distressing on the edges is a nice touch. Thanks for linking up with Merry Monday this week 🙂

  2. They turned out perfectly. I love it when you have wall space you can rotate items on. I’m crushing big time on those window treatments!!!

  3. I love how white paint updates and freshens up thrift store finds. The ladies look right at home in your dining room.

  4. The frames are much better now that you’ve put your special touch on them! Great makeover!!

  5. You know I adore paint – what a great find and a great makeover!

  6. Love these on the wall. Spray paint is awesome! I like the other arrangement as well but thrifty changes are always fun!

  7. isn’t spray paint magical?

    I prefer the new look over the wrought iron plates… but that’s just me. I recently opened a booth and yesterday while talking to my daughter she said “mom, you should just walk around your house and grab things to take to your booth” Think she’s trying to tell me something?


  8. Right now, I like the white plaques best on the wall. I think I’m into the distressed look instead of the black wrought iron – it’s too much of a contrast. I do like wrought iron, though in another place.

  9. These look great!! I like that you did not distress the ladies. It is a nice subtle contrast to the frames. Beautiful!

  10. White spray paint and I are well acquainted. We are currently priming lots of misc. colored miniatures for a dollhouse. Once the white is to cover the original I can doll them up in any shade I chose – most from the thrift store of course.
