Air Vent Camouflage

Sometimes it's the small changes that make the biggest impact on how you feel about a room.

Our main floor is hardwood throughout in a very dark tone. In the kitchen there is a large air return vent nearly in the middle of the room. It's white and sticks out like a sore thumb. When we get around to renovating the kitchen it will be relocated, but for now it's the first thing you see when you walk in the room (besides the beautiful island where the blue box is below).

One day last week I decided to spray paint the vent to match the floor. After giving it a good scrubbing, I painted it with Rustoleum 2X spray paint in Espresso.  It's back in place now and blends in nicely with the floor colour.

I was so happy with the results that I decided to paint the register covers as well though Tom thought it would be better to just buy new ones since the old ones were so rusted. He bought brown ones, but the colour wasn't quite right, so I gave them the same treatment as the air return vent.

So much better! Why didn't I think of this a long time ago?
