While the grip may be tight on your wallet, there are ways to unleash your creative juices and make improvements to your home in a snap this fall. Revitalize the look of your home and seasonal decor with these fast, easy and inexpensive projects
from Rust-Oleum®.

"Canadians are looking forward to months of entertaining family and friends in their homes and they want to make a great impression," says Rhoda Williams, Brand Manager with Rust-Oleum Consumer Brands Canada. "No matter what the budget, stylish home décor upgrades can be achieved with Rust-Oleum's line of innovative products."

Instant Curb Appeal
Front Door Facelift
Satin finishes are in style this season. To give the exterior of your home an instant facelift try refinishing small outdoor surfaces such as the front door or garage door before snow blankets the front yard. 

With Rust-Oleum Door Paint, easily and quickly paint metal, wood and fibreglass doors without having to stress over long drying times. The doors will be rust-resistant, chip-resistant, and won't fade. Try colours like cranberry or vermont green for a seasonal flair or stick with classic black and ivory that will maintain their sheen and high-style look for years to come.

Planters with Pizzazz
Urns or planters by your front door are a great way to bring colour and curb appeal to your home. If your planters have seen better days, think about giving them or any other outdoor accessories a new lease on life with Concrete Stain. Available in a new, water-based aerosol application, simply spray the stain onto concrete, block and masonry items - no priming required.

For larger projects, Concrete Stain is available in kits that include a sprayer or can be painted on with a brush, rag or roller. 

Festive Fun
Choose one or two festive colours and spray paint nearly anything without breaking the bank on pricey seasonal products. Use a no-fuss spray paint like Painter's Touch® in seasonal colours on virtually any surface and give your festive indoor or outdoor décor a makeover.

This Halloween, consider using Chalk Board Tint Base on pumpkins and write fun messages or draw a festive face that can be erased with the swipe of a cloth (click here for step by step instructions). For a greater impact in the evening hours use Glow in the Dark paint on pumpkins lining your walkway. This luminous latex paint applies easily, dries fast and glows for hours. 

Easy Indoor Projects
Ingrain with Stain
Create new memories by refinishing old, damaged or dull wood furniture. For staining novices, new products such as Varathane® Foam Stain take the mess out of traditional staining.

Easily stain any wood product, from picture frames to wood cabinets in some of the season's hottest shades. Go from oak to walnut with a press of the nozzle and a swipe of cloth. Take wood from drab to fab this fall with Varathane Foam Stain.

Child's Play
Instead of having the kids climb the walls this fall have them write on it instead! Rust-Oleum offers several specialty paint products that will make any child's bedroom or playroom the envy of every kid on the block. With Chalk Board Tint Base easily apply fun colours such as raspberry, peapod or periwinkle to a child's bedroom or playroom. Now they can draw their favourite pictures or practice their spelling without the traditional mess.

As a fun extra add Magnetic Latex Primer before you apply chalkboard paint or even regular wall paint to make any surface magnetic. 

With Rust-Oleum's speciality paints anyone can turn a child's room into a playground.
