When you want to change the color of a wooden chair, you automatically reach for a can of spray paint. But when you have some monstera leaves, a KitchenAid mixer or a fridge in need of a makeover? Spray paint isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. After searching the web and our archives for unexpected subjects for spray-paint spruce-ups, we’ve determined that this humble supply can accomplish much more than we ever thought it capable of.

Above: If you moved into an older home with outdated appliances, it doesn’t mean you have to live with a dingy beige fridge. Get inspired by the bold move of the homeowners of this Vancouver loft featured on Design*Sponge and spray-paint it a modern hue, following our tutorial.

Gold Leafing

When you combine a sculptural monstera leaf with metallic spray paint, the result is a work of art. Domino displays theirs as a simple centerpiece, but the idea can add shine to any corner of your home, whether you’re expecting company or not.

Put It On Vinyl

Thrift stores are full of outdated vinyl chairs that were cast to the curb when the material went out of style. Fortunately, this durable material is easy to spray paint a fresh color, making it easy to incorporate into modern decor. Check out our vinyl spray paint test to see which brand worked best.

Color Aid

Whether you inherited a KitchenAid in an old-fashioned color or instantly regretted the color you chose the moment you brought it home, don’t fret. Spray paint can transform this appliance into a piece you’ll be proud to leave out on your counter. See the full tutorial for the step-by-step.

Looking Glass

You’ve likely never thought to spray-paint your mirror, but when you take a peek at Little Green Notebook‘s faux mercury glass cabinet doors, you may be tempted.

Chair Flair

Rather than reupholster a dated chair, try spritzing it with flexible fabric paint. While we’re pretty sure the Caribbean Blue paint above was originally intended for decorating t-shirts at children’s birthday parties, we can’t argue with these results. Find the full how-to here.

Get a Handle On It

Worn brass doorknobs and handles are common in older homes, but a coat of spray paint is all it takes to hide their age. Young House Love doused theirs with spray paint in an oil-rubbed bronze finish to impart a sophisticated matte look.

It’s a Wrap

I’ve never considered spray-painting wrapping paper, but this ombre gift wrap by Oh So Beautiful Papers is convincing me to try it.

Raise a Glass

Spray-painting wood? Sure. Plastic? Definitely. But unleashing spray paint on glass? Here’s where things get a little more creative. I SPY DIY spritzed glass bottles with sea glass spray to create customized desk storage.

Rock Stars

While painting stones may remind you of painting pet rocks as a kid, Design Love Fest proves it can create a sophisticated project for an adult apartment, too. A couple coats of gold paint turn a pair of rocks into glam bookends. Pro tip: To avoid scratching the top of your dresser, line the bottom of each rock with felt.

Serve Some Style

A Kailo Chic Life painted the underside of $1 glass plates from IKEA in hues to match her party palette. By coating just the undersides and leaving the tops undecorated, you can make sure the plates are food-safe.

Hang Out

You know those cheap metal hangers you’ve collected from dry cleaners over the years? Burkatron had the brilliant idea to give them a matching coat of copper spray paint.

Taste the Rainbow

We typically leave food to The Kitchn, but when we spotted these Lisa Frank-inspired donuts embellished with edible spray paint on Aww Sam, we couldn’t resist sharing.
