Okay maybe it’s more than five seconds, but this DIY idea isn’t much longer than that. Much like the often quoted “Put a bird on it” fad that was made so popular last year, we have another phrase we’d like to make known: “Put some white on it.” The premise is simple. You spend a little time finding a bunch of knick knacks that have interesting shapes. You spray painted them all white. Voila! You have a modern, crisp, stark collection of items to display along a mantle, a shelf or on a table top.
This can be an incredibly easy way to add some texture, interest and you know, stuff, to an empty modern room. And seriously cheap. And seriously fast. You could even start collecting items that have a theme in a box for awhile…maybe it’s owl sculptures. Maybe it’s creepy kid figurines. Anything, really, could work for this. Then grab some spray paint — we suggest glossy white, but really, you could even go a bright, pop-y color if that feels more right — and then take it outside, lay some cardboard down, spray the heck out of these pieces, let ’em dry and you’re done. Fasted DIY project ever!
You ever spray paint something all one color to “modernize” it? Was it successful? Tell us what you’re going to go paint white. We want to know!
