I used all of the original hardware and spray painted it with primer and then painted it using a Rustoleum black spray paint. The finished product was simply breath taking….one more time, shall we? by Raelynn8

Dryer Vent Pumpkin
For those of you who maybe haven't see this industrial pumpkin before, here is what you need: Dryer vent (purchased at your local hardware store), orange spray paint, a stem (I used cinnamon sticks, but you can use sticks or whatever you want), and a little bit of raffia. I cut and glued the vent into a donut using hot glue. Then I spray painted the whole thing, making sure to get in all the groves. Attach the cinnamon sticks by Tonya Ford Ashley

Easy DIY: Create 2 wooden frames with 1x2 boards. Paint frames then attach chicken wire to back frame using a staple gun. Pre drill and then use wood screws to sandwich the frames together with chicken wire in the middle. Hide screws from behind. I used mini clothes pins to attach fun sunflower pics and quotes for a summer decor theme. by naomial

Goodwill Dresser Upcycle Reveal - This look was created using two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White. I tried a new technique and distressed it before I used my Annie Sloan Clear Wax. I used 100 grit sand paper to distress followed by a coat of clear wax and finished it off with a mix of clear and dark wax. I wanted this really shabby because of all the nicks and dents it has, so I used dark wax on the entire piece versus just in the spots I distressed. by Marianne Diaz Barri

a coat of Zinsser Cover Stain. Then two coats of paint (Valspar in Rugged Suede).  added two coats of this Minwax Polycrylic to the whole piece. Since it's water based it's easy to use and clean up. And I used satin finish because I didn't want this piece too shiny. by PearForTheTeacher
