Unlock your DIY creativity with ultimate control

Have you ever walked past a piece of furniture and thought, “That could use a pop of color”? Or gazed at a plain wall and imagined a vibrant mural? What’s old is new again and your consumers are looking for the perfect products to help them tackle the job.

The beauty of DIY projects with spray paint lies in their simplicity and accessibility. Rust-Oleum Protective Enamel with Custom Spray 5-in-1 makes it easier than ever to achieve superior results. “The innovative design offers five distinct spray patterns, providing users with ultimate control over their projects,” says Do it Best Merchandise Manager Jeff Ridgeway. “The high-output spray is perfect for covering large, rounded surfaces, while the standard pattern suits traditional applications. The low-output setting allows for precision when painting details and edges, ensuring a smooth finish without runs or drips. Not to mention, the vertical and horizontal fan patterns cater to wide and tall surfaces, respectively.”

Grab your imagination and let’s embark on a colorful journey of self-expression and transformation with these project ideas:

Revamp furniture

That tired-looking chair or the forgotten side table in the corner can become the stars of your DIY show. All it takes is a can of spray paint in your favorite color, and voila! You’ve just given a new lease of life to a once-overlooked piece. Experiment with different finishes – matte, glossy, metallic – to match your aesthetic

Frame it

Got plain walls staring back at you? Say goodbye to monotony and hello to custom artwork. Whether it’s a geometric pattern, a free-flowing mural, or a simple ombre effect, spray painting your own, custom art is a quick and budget-friendly way to transform any room. Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust® Protective Enamel with Custom Spray 5-in-1 gives DIYers the option to make a big impact with the high-output spray or pay attention to the details with the low-output option.

Have kids or a playful spirit? Turn plain rocks into vibrant creatures with a splash of colorful spray paint. It’s a fantastic way to spend an afternoon with the little ones, fostering creativity and creating unique garden decorations. From ladybug rocks to rainbow pebbles, the possibilities are as endless as your child’s imagination.

Breathe new life

Take a stroll through a thrift store and discover hidden treasures begging for a makeover. Old frames, vintage mirrors, or even a wooden tray—these items can be transformed into personalized, one-of-a-kind masterpieces with the transformative touch of spray paint. It’s the ultimate way to showcase your style without breaking the bank.

When it comes to revamping metal and wood surfaces, Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust® Protective Enamel with Custom Spray 5-in-1 stands out as a reliable and versatile choice. “It’s a standout product and it’s going to make a big impact this spring,” adds Ridgeway. With its Custom Spray 5-in-1 feature and advanced formula, this spray paint is a game-changer for DIY enthusiasts.

So, what are you waiting for? Let your creativity run wild, and watch as ordinary objects transform into extraordinary pieces of art. The joy of creating something uniquely yours is just a spray away. Happy crafting!
