Now it's "grate"

Prior to the old flooring getting ripped out and the new flooring getting laid...the 3 floor vents were white...not gonna work with the new floors.

I looked at both Lowes and Home Depot for brown vents...
this is the best they've got.
(they look almost green here)

Nothing a little spray paint can't help.
(yes, I sprayed the new ones...the old white ones had dings and dents all over and so we decided to ditch them so the newly painted ones looked just that, new)

Not a perfect match...but a great brown that I don't mind seeing against the new floors.
Hurray for spray paint!

I'm linkin to the Power of Paint party

Little update...after spraying the first (I used Rustoleum dark brown) I decided to prime the next 2 first...just to make sure the paint stays put, since these are on the ground and all. They covered the same...I guess only time will tell if they will hold up.

Those look nice!! I have seriously thought about spray painting ours because I hate the gold/bronze look.
