Nothing can change the look and feel of anything from a piece of furniture to a space quite like a fresh coat of paint. This is probably my favorite way to change things ups! It’s a simple way to make a huge impact and completely change the feel of whatever it is you’re painting.
Here are some things to consider this spring if you’re going for a fresh new look! Obviously, painting the walls in your home is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to transition a space. If your space is getting stale or looking a little dull and boring, slap a fresh coat of paint on those walls and watch that space transform! Whites and grays are the neutrals that are here to stay (thank you Chip & Jo and Fixer Upper). But people have been using crisp neutrals to open up a space long before Chip and Jo came along.
Giving the feeling of clean, crisp and new, neutrals are the perfect way to brighten up dark space with little natural light. It is also a great way to bounce natural light throughout a room and create the illusion of space and serenity. Throw on a few coats of a crisp neutral in a living room, bedroom, dining room, or even kitchen and watch your space come to life!
Another way I like to change things up is by refinishing a piece of furniture. This may require a little more work on the front end, but can make a big statement in a space. I love to find old pieces, or things that have been passed down by family members, and repurpose them. Too scared to put bold colors on walls? Be bold with a pop of color from a statement piece. We’re totally digging this bright green piece from blogger and artist Cline Rose. The pop of color instantly livens up the space and draws the eye to the piece. The details in this piece are to die for, but maybe you’re not quite feeling that daring yet? No worries, go a little more traditional and give life to an old dark
piece with a fresh coat of white paint like this diy blogger. Either way, transforming a space with a refinished pieces is another simple way to love your house again.
One last way I’ve really been into lately is adding some curb appeal. I’m totally loving this, because not only are you sprucing up the outside of your house with a fresh new front door, but that paint color is also coming into play inside! What a perfect way to add some color and life as soon as you enter your home! Whether you want to go bold or muted, colorful or neutral, or even totally seasonal, you can make this work for any type of home in any location!
So whether you need some curb appeal, indoor inspiration, or just a statement piece of furniture, painting is definitely the way to go. The other great thing about this task is that if it is planned and prepared correctly, it doesn’t have to take a whole lot of time. I love how such a simple change can bring so much life and inspiration not only to a space, but to personally as well.
