I have to admit, I had not really gotten down and looked at my floor vents until a couple years ago.
Yeah, it was a little gross! But when I did finally check them out their were really dirty and rusty.
And buying beautiful new vent covers (especially for a whole room or home) can get pricey!
But, I have good news for you, beautiful, clean, modern looking floor vents are within your reach
at pennies on the dollar.
By giving each vent a good scrub in warm soapy water, drying them well, and using two coats of
spray paint like this Hammered Metal finish by Rust-Oleum, you can have brand new vents in
no time at all!
One vent doesn’t cost that much, but replacing all of them for a large room or in every room can be
very expensive. And structurally they were fine, they were just 10+ years old, and white.
And a bit faded and rusty.
So they didn’t really do the floor any favors.
Here is the before…ewwwww….
And the after!
The power of a good cleaning and paint when needed never ceases to amaze me.
All right friends, that was tip/DIY #5 in our 31 day No/Low Spend Challenge which is going to take more
than 31 days by the time we get done (thank you cold and flu bugs!)
See you back here soon with another idea or DIY to help you save more money,
use what you have, and keep on creating in 2015!!
