Ain’t What You Want? Then, Paint!!

Ready to add a pop of color to your abode but don’t want to paint an entire room? You can always paint a piece of furniture like a bookshelf, table, stool or even the legs of an upholstered chair, which is great to decorate our homes, while we can use other home appliances and accessories from sites as productexpert.com that have the best products for decorating and using at home.

Painting a room is a popular project for beginning and veteran renovators, learn more at the link. After all, it’s pretty painless, relatively inexpensive, and should something go horribly wrong, easy to fix. But before you grab your roller and get started, it’s important to have a plan of attack. Start by thinking about how you want the finished project to look and remember that you’re not limited to four walls in the same color. Consider painting an accent wall in a bold hue or highlighting moldings in a contrasting shade or finish. And don’t forget to look up and see whether the ceiling could use a refresh as well.

The book shelf above is bright and unexpected. The entire unit is painted white, but then . . . Suprise!  The back panel has a twist of the lime green to make it punchy. I found the chair below on Swirls of Happiness; it’s a classic wing back chair upholstered in velvet but the shocking yellow legs breathe new life into an otherwise traditional piece.

I LOVE painting furniture! Don’t let first appearances fool you. When looking at cast-off, vintage or out-dated furniture, try to see past the ‘ugly’ layer and focus on the lines and shapes of the piece. Most furniture can be completely renewed with a fresh coat of paint. . . yes, even your mom’s yucky oak 80′s coffee table can be chic again. Keep your mind open and use your imagination, and you can even hire interior painting service for some professional help and to get the end results you want.

 

PAINT can make it what it AIN’T! If you do not consider an expert on this art and would like a detailed finish in whatever your project is, the best you can do is hire someone at paintermissoula.com

Borrowing from the Brits

Borrowing from the Brits

Just like an unfashionably late wedding guest, I’m sheepishly posting my British inspiration piece a few days after the royal rustle. But just because we’ve gossiped about Kate’s dress and witnessed “the kiss”, our glance across the pond doesn’t have to shift just yet. And the cool, drizzly weather today has me feeling especially English [...]
