12 Classroom Uses for Spray Paint

As I’m getting ready for the school year, I’m always look for quick, inexpensive ways to add a little pizzaz to my office for the year. One of the ways I LOVE to do this is by using spray paint. There’s just something about spending $3 and having a massive transformation done in less than 10 minutes! I’ve scoured the internet and put together a huge list of things you can remodel with spray paint for your classroom. Please add your own in the comments!!
