Radiators will be eternally ugly...if you let them. Olga--of Olga's DIY Like You've Never Seen DIY--doesn't...
First she painted the inside and the outside of her bedroom radiator black so as to make it disappear as much as possible.
Once it became a neutral backdrop, she used Modern Masters copper acrylic to paint on two stencils--arabic border and an Italian flower pattern--taking matters ino her own hands.
Now, instead of an eyesore, Olga's radiator is a stunning focal point in the room.
