If you follow my blog, you will know that I recently googled to see if you are able to spray paint plastic and guess what??….YOU CAN!! WooHoo!! I’m trying to make my office/craft closet look a little more orderly and the clear, see-through tubs were not helping. Here’s how my closet looked before:
Okay – back to our project. So all you need is something plastic. For this project I painted not only a couple of my plastic totes (I had to test it first) but also a medicine bottle and a dip container. Upcycling baby!! You can also paint plastic patio furniture too. If you buy just the primer you can then paint it whatever color you want. I think I might do a design on these later, but for now they will be white.
Mr Awesome taped off the bottoms although I really could have painted those as well.
Look at him…being all super neat and everything.
Now it’s ready to paint!
I used Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch 2X Ultra Cover Paint+Primer in white.
Let the painting begin!
And here’s the finished product! I think it turned out awesome and I’ve already started painting some more totes!
Someone did ask, how will I know what is inside? Labeling of course! I just haven’t decided the details of that but just know it’s a future project on the horizon.
Have you tried any new projects lately? Have you had any upcycling ideas?
Stay awesome y’all! ~lisa
