I went to my local thrift store and began the hunt.
I couldn't resist changing the color of them. I bought two bottles of grey acrylic paint and began coating them with a cheap sponge brush. You can find the paint and brushes at your local A.C Moore, Michael's and sometimes Walmart. The bottles of paint were less than a dollar each and the brushes are like 50 cents and you can find them in a variety of brush sizes.
I let the last coat dry overnight and began hanging them the next morning.
It sounds so simple and painless because it was!
