Further Information


Jodi Marks: I remember when I became a first time homeowner. After signing my life away at the closing table, I didn’t have a lot of money leftover to go out and buy new furniture. So I was always shopping at flea markets and yard sales, and spray paint became my best friend.

Well, a lot has changed in the spray paint department since I bought my first house. Look at all of the different colors and styles, and actually finishes that you have to choose from now. And I like this one right here. This is the Rust-Oleum Universal. And this is great because it also is an all-surface spray paint, which means it can go on just about any surface, be it wood, metal, plastic, masonry. I mean, the list goes on and on.

And again, look at all the colors you have to choose from. What I like about the Universal series, though, is you could choose from a hammered looking surface or a metallic, or even a satin looking surface. And again, because it’s a spray paint, it’s very easy to use.

But look at this. Remember when you try to spray paint upside down, your can would get clogged and the paint wouldn’t come out? Well, now it’s designed to be actually rotated 360 degrees all the way around, and it’ll still give you a smooth finish every time.

I tell you what, I think the hardest thing that you are going to have to do is choosing which ones you want to buy.
