Guest Post: Susie from Arcadian Lighting

Have you heard about Arcadian Lighting? They are the best source for home lighting accessories at discount prices. Arcadian Lighting started selling decorative home lighting fixtures and lamps online, and has become one of the top Internet retailers for home lighting products. Today, Susie is here to share some of her decorating ideas with painted beauties.

Spray paint can transform something ugly to a beauty in an afternoon. Look for furnishings, lighting fixtures and accessories that have great designs and grab a can of spray paint. There are spray paints for specific surfaces, including fabric, as well as general purposes. Make sure you choose the right paint for your project. Spray paint, let us count the ways how much we love you...

Spray Painted Pillow

Country Living (via)

Yes, this pillow was made with spray paint. Stunned? We were! Using a stencil and fabric spray paint from Simply Spray, this gorgeous pillow can be made in an afternoon.

Spray Painted Votives

Mark Montano (via)

Saw these votives on Mark Montano's blog and upon first glance thought they were hand-blown glass. They're not! White spray paint and yarn transforms old bottles in a simple DIY project. These could easily replace a table lamp.

Spray Painted Shade

Country Living (via)

Stencils and spray paint are a match made in heaven. How adorable is this birdcage spray painted onto a simple bamboo shade? It could easily work on a plain vinyl shade too.

Spray Painted Chandeliers

Apartment Therapy (via)

An outdated chandelier is reborn as a colorful lighting fixture with spray paint and beads or crystals. Look for chandeliers with great bones at thrift stores and yard sales.

Spray Painted Birds

The Dollar Diva (via)

White spray paint is a DIY girl's best friend. These little birds were bought at a dollar store and transformed with white paint into chic accessories.

Spray Painted Mirror

Turquoise Chic (via)

Designer Erinn Valencich, pictured here, spray painted the ornate mirror in her entry a deep red. Spray paint is a wonderful way to add bold color to your accessories or accents as well as furniture.

Spray Painted Frames

Shelterness (via)

Love the ornate yellow frame. Found at a garage sale, these frames went from beasts to beauties with colorful paint. All of these would make great mirrors too.

Spray Painted Furniture

Boston Knucklehead (via)

This graffiti painted pieces are a literal translation of spray painted furniture. Not for everyone but in a really contemporary room these would look fantastic. So colorful!
