DIY Spray Painted Bamboo Sticks

So I wanted a spot of color into your guest room. There isn't so much stuff in there yet, so this photo looks a bit sad. The guitar is a Christmas present from Husband, soo cool! I used to play classical stuff when I was a kid, but didn't like that too much... Right now I'm learning "Fade Into You" (Nashville Cast version).

So back to the bamboo. I saw some red branches at Michaels but didn't like the branches themselves, so I bought some bamboo sticks and red spray paint (Rust-oleum Painter's Touch in Gloss Apple Red).

This was so simple and quick (apart from the time that goes to drying), and doesn't really require instructions, but I thought I'd still share :)

How to:

Make sure you have a something underneath that's large enough to protect the floor/ground. This was barely enough, get something bigger! Wind etc will spread the paint around a bit.

Spray a layer, wait until dry to the touch, flip over. Repeat until you've gotten all surfaces painted.

M was still here when we made these, so she was painting while I was taking photos.


  1. Looks fabulous! I think these sticks would look great in every room! Just paint it in different color and that's it! :)
