Not every dad is a great DIYer, capable of building their kid that three-story treehouse with a working elevator and slide. Few dads have such skills, let alone time. But with a few cans of Krylon® spray paint, a dad can flex his DIY skills and impress his kids — by building them a shiny new customized bike; turning a pedal car into an epic red fire truck; or converting an old swing set into a bright and cheerful play space. Looking for some accessible DIY inspiration? Look no further. Here are some awesome DIY projects that require little more than a man with a can.
