5 Paint Projects to Tackle At Home

Are you one of the millions stuck at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, take this time as an opportunity to transform your home with the paint projects you’ve always wanted to tackle, but could never find the time for!. ‘Do It Yourself’ (otherwise known as DIY) projects can be a fantastic stress reliever by giving you a natural high and a sense of accomplishment, which is what everyone needs during this stressful and uncertain time. From adding an accent wall to reviving a piece of old furniture, the paint projects below will have you never wanting to leave home again! Continue reading to discover some great ideas for paint projects that you can complete while you’re spending extra time indoors! 

1. Add an Accent Wall

It’s true that painting only one wall can change the entire look of a room. Creating an accent wall with paint is the easiest way to elevate any room in your home. When you paint an accent wall, you are choosing to add a focal point to any room without adding any complex architectural features. This one wall can be any color of your choosing, just be sure to plan out your color palette so everything can merge together cohesively!


2. Add Color to Your Kitchen Cabinets or Island

What room is used the most in any given home? It’s the kitchen! Since so many people spend a significant amount of time each day in their kitchen, shouldn’t it look extra amazing? One way to bring new life to your kitchen is to add a fresh coat of paint to your cabinets and/or island. Painting your kitchen cabinets will give you a fresh and updated look, but if you’re not up to the challenge of painting all of the cabinets, just focus on your island! The biggest kitchen trend right now is having a two-toned kitchen with a different yet complementary color on the island. When you choose the color for either your cabinets, island, or both, consider the backsplash, countertops, and other surfaces that are already present in the kitchen. The next time you’re entertaining, your guests will think that you renovated the entire kitchen in a matter of weeks!

3. Revive a Piece of Furniture with Paint

We all have a piece of furniture we love that has been with us throughout the years, but it might need some sprucing up to keep it relevant to the current times. Whether it’s an old dresser, chair, headboard, or even an antique piece passed down from a relative, applying a new coat of paint can help elevate the pieces you cherish most! A new pop of color on your furniture will change the entire room without you having to touch the walls. A huge benefit of repainting your furniture is the amount of money you will save. This process is extremely cost-effective, as new furniture is very expensive and is often not as durable as pieces that have already lasted the test of time. Pick the piece you want to revamp, select your ideal color, get to work, and have fun!


4. Repaint Your Front Door

We are starting to enter the warmer part of the year, which makes it the perfect time for outdoor paint projects. One of the easiest and most impactful ways to elevate your home’s curb appeal is to paint your front door. From blistering heat to the harsh winter, the weather can have a major impact on your front door’s appearance and ruin or fade the color over time. During the planning process, choose a color that you will love, as well as one that will complement your home’s style. For instance, a colonial-style home that is white with black shutters can become a showstopper with a deep red hue on the front door. Your front door’s new paint color will add to your home’s personality and charm for years to come.

5. Paint Your Deck

With winter finally over and spring and summer sneaking up on us, now is the best time to paint your deck. Take this opportunity to start preparing your outdoor space for entertaining and/or relaxing. Painting your deck has a ton of benefits – it makes the deck easier to clean, has the ability to repair damaged wood by filling in gaps and cracks, and provides you with room to be creative with different color options! Create your own outdoor oasis by adding a deck painting project to your agenda!
