Paint a chair. If an old chair frame is in good shape, it can easily be repainted, reupholstered and loved like new again. Try peacock blue.
Paint the back of a bookcase for a pop of color. Try a citrusy chartreuse hue.
Keep your kitchen cabinets a neutral color. Instead paint your kitchen island a bright, vibrant Kelly green.
Add an unexpected splash of color to the inside of your vanity, dresser or nightstand drawers by painting them a bright yellow.
Paint your closet doors. Pick up a color from your bedspread or throw pillows. This will make a dramatic difference in your bedroom. Why not also add vibrancy in an unexpected way by not just painting a your headboard but the entire bed frame? If you have a four-poster bed this will be especially striking.
Just like any other piece of furniture — a dresser, bookshelf, headboard or nightstand — a secondhand desk can be given the same custom update. All you have to do is look beyond the scratches and exterior imperfections, because most can be fixed and covered with a few coats of paint.
A freshly painted front door is not only a warm welcoming for guests, but it’s also an easy way to add instant curb appeal to your home. Fiery red, anyone?
