DIY Spring Tablescape


Can you tell just by looking at the photo above that 3 items are spray painted? I teamed up with Joann Fabrics for this project and they challenged me to use Rust-Oleum spray paint to either create or transform a project! If you are anything like me, I love to create beautiful spaces on a budget so I was excited to think outside of the box and incorporate spray paint in a unique way!

For this tablescape, I really drew inspiration from the Rust-Oleum Imagine Sea Glass spray paint. When I spotted it, I knew I had to use it in this project. In the next isle I also found these beautiful textured glass jars and just like that, the entire project came together in my mind. To fully cover the jars, it took 3 completely dried, thin coats. When using any spray paint, be careful not to spray too close or it will create runs which are tough to correct, I made that mistake on the first jar. I love how this spray paint really changed the look of these ordinary jars to something that looked high end and much more expensive.

Next up, I wanted to try spray painting wicker. Instead of buying new chargers for this project, I wanted to try a set I already had to save money. I have never attempted to use spray paint on this texture but I pictured of a sort of white-washed/distressed charger for this tablescape. I used Rust-Oleum Paint & Primer ivory semi gloss to do this. There was no “going back” on these because I really wanted the wicker to still come through the color. I took my time and did light, even coats until I got the look I wanted. Surprisingly, these turned out even better than I could have imagined. They brought an awesome texture to the look of the tablescape and I love how it turned out!

I loved the before, but the after is so pretty and unique!

When I was browsing the spray paint section at Joann’s, I fell in love with this blush pink color from Rust-Oleum’s imagine line. I knew the soft color would fit perfectly in this project. I decided to to spray paint 4 small wooden eggs and used a little different method for spray painting these. I started off with one coat of blush pink and when it was probably 50% dry, I got super close and did a thick coat on one side of each of the eggs. This made a big run of paint and created a really cool, almost marble effect on them. Once they dried and I added them to the tablescape, they were a perfect fit!

I love the extra detail these spray painted eggs added to the tablescape!

This was such a fun project and I love how it all came together! If you are looking to create a budget friendly space, I encourage you to incorporate items you already have and spray painting them to give it a completely different look!

There are many thrifted or repurposed items that I included in this tablescape. When you want to decorate a new space, don’t always feel like you have to buy things brand new.
