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.
