Our air vents have gotten out. of. control. So this rainy Sunday afternoon we finally did something about it. We had contemplated buying new air vents earlier ($20 each at least), but decided to try a DIY project instead… SO glad we did!!
At first I scrubbed and scrubbed with a brush, then sprayed each down with a hose outside. This photo was AFTER a good scrub and wash. (Gross, right?!)
After they dried, we used Rust-oleum Spray Paint for appliances from Lowe’s (just a couple $) to paint them white again. It was raining, so we had to move this project under our carport (not the best idea with spray paint – but made it work.) We propped up the vent using an old brick so we could paint both sides at one time without smudging.
Here is one before and one after paint – AMAZING difference a little paint can do!!
The finished project…. like NEW!!!! Sounds simple (because it was), but makes for a successful weekend project when we can save $$$$$!!
