I haven't done a DIY project around the house in awhile, but even I know I've got a can of leftover spray paint lying around the house somewhere. Don't go out and buy more materials for DIY projects; we've got ten ideas of simple (even pretty obvious!) DIY details you can do around the house with leftover spray paint you might already have. Will one of these spark an idea for you this weekend?

A simple, plain welcome mat is okay, but make a template, grab a can of spray paint and tell guests how you really feel. Via Griffanie.

Greenery is good and lovely by itself, but spray some sprigs with a color or metallic hue and have a design detail that really catches attention for your vases. Seen on Lately With Kate.

It's not news, but maybe you could use a push: IKEA pieces are the perfect canvas for spray paint, either by an overall color paint job or even just highlights of certain details. Seen on Clarissa.

It sounds crazy, but yes some fabric and vinyl chairs can be made over with spray paint. See how on We Can Make Anything.

Don't let planters be boring! Add fun stripes or patterns with spray paint. This idea found on Fifty Two Weekends of DIY.

Hangers and art will never be the same when they come into contact with spray paint. This idea spotted on The Lovely Drawer.

Take an old, not-super-attractive vintage lamp (or an item you can make into a lamp) and give it new life with spray paint of any color. Seen on Homemade Ginger.

Even toys can be used as decor when given a coating of fresh color. This idea spotted on The Chic Home.

Yes, curtains can get a make over with spray paint, too! See how on Squirrelly Minds.

And top photo: As you can probably imagine, nearly anything can be refreshed with spray paint. Like the vintage magazine rack found on Farm Fresh Therapy, is there something in your home you could update with a fresh coat of color this weekend?
