Spray It Together
To brighten up an ordinary table, make a gathering of collectibles unified by their hue. You can use a mishmash of objects you already own—porcelain birds, antique keys, candlestick holders—or go thrift-shopping. Choose a spray-paint color that works well in the room you want to liven up. Pick bold hues—like red, royal blue, or celadon—or, if you're feeling blingy, go for metallic paint in silver or gold. Spray each item, allow to dry, then arrange in the center of the table or on a sideboard.
