The beat of a different drummer

I have always loved the the metal lockers from the IKEA PS collection. Though they don't fit into my decor, at the moment, I always like seeing them pop up in rooms on sites like Apartment Therapy, Decor8, and Design Sponge.

I just wanted to put this out there for anyone that starts to tire of their pieces or want to buy them but not in the available colors.

On the site for RustOleum paint, they show that you can use their Painter's Touch spray paint on these exact same pieces to change the look. The paint works on wood, wicker, metal, plaster, masonry, unglazed ceramics, and comes in 42 glossy and 28 satin colors. Shown here is a gloss Seaside Green.

Are you having as hard a time finding the right RustOleum color in the right product and in the right size as I am? You can now order from their recommended online retailers, Ace Hardware Outlet and Builder Depot.

RustOleum has also come out with a new water-based spray paint called Aqua. The convenience of a spray without the clean up and apartment asphyxiation that comes with mineral spirits. Yes!
