Looking to update your home for the season but don’t have the budget for a major renovation? Do it right with these three easy DIY paint projects that can each be done in just a day.
“The seasonal transition from winter to spring is the perfect time to freshen up,” says Sharon Grech, color and design expert for Benjamin Moore. Here are a few small weekend projects that are quick, easy and affordable.”
Hit REFRESH with paint
Nothing says refresh quite like bringing new life to a tired piece of furniture. A fresh coat of paint is the perfect solution to make old, dated furniture seem trendy and new. Look for pieces that have solid construction and interesting shapes. Grech says headboards, wardrobes, chairs and side tables are all great pieces to transform.
Amaze with an accent wall
Feature walls are a great way to make an impactful change to a space. “Many people think accent walls need to be very bold and vibrant hues, when they can be neutral to create a more cohesive and harmonious feel,” says Grech. Explore painting the fifth wall, otherwise known as the ceiling, for a unique and modern look that can add dimension to a space.
Front door décor
The front door has the ability to instantly create an inviting impression before guests enter your home. “Applying a fresh coat of paint to your front door is a great DIY project that can be done quickly and can invigorate the look and feel of your home,” says Grech. “Because it’s so easy, you can even change your door color seasonally.”
