Vinyl mini blinds are a favorite option for homes because they come in a variety of colors, are durable and simple to maintain. Any blind can be expensive to replace, and refurbishing them is often a less-expensive option when moving them to another room or changing the decor. It is possible to paint vinyl mini blinds with a new spray paint by Krylon Fusion that is specifically meant for difficult-to-paint surfaces such as vinyl, plastics, resin, PVC, glass, ceramic, tiles, metal and other surfaces.

Paint your vinyl mini blinds to bring them back to life.

Step 1

Remove the vinyl mini blinds from the window by lifting them out of the brackets. Cover the work surface with plastic or newspaper to protect it, and make sure it is a well-ventilated area. Lay the blinds on the work surface.

Step 2

Pull the valance away from the blinds. Slide all the slats out of the strings holding them, and lay the slats on the newspaper or plastic.

Step 3

Wipe down the blinds gently with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris that may be on them before you begin painting.

Step 4

Apply a standard paint thinner evenly to the blinds with a cloth so the paint will adhere to the vinyl blinds better.

Step 5

Spray the blinds with a light layer of the Krylon Fusion paint. Wait for it to dry for about 15 minutes, and check that the blinds are thoroughly covered. Apply a second coat at this time if necessary. Replace the slats when they are completely dry, and hang the blinds back on the wall.
