Are you a weekend warrior looking for easy DIY paint projects? Do you have paint left over from a larger project and are unsure how to use it? Perhaps you’re new to DIY-ing and want to dip a toe in the water before diving in headfirst. A quart of paint is perfect for tackling smaller paint jobs around your home. Get your brushes and rollers ready because the team at paintCLE is sharing our favorite ways to use a quart of Benjamin Moore paint.
A Quick Furniture Facelift
Whether you’re redecorating a room and need to update the end tables or have a family heirloom that’s seen better days, a quart of paint is all you need to make a few items look brand new. Even newer pieces can use an update with the change of seasonal decor or furniture. Keep the undertaking on the simple side by avoiding any pieces you must take apart before painting, and always remember to sand any wood item before putting on the first coat.
Redo an Interior Door
Interior doors often go overlooked when you’re rethinking a room’s color scheme, but they’re an excellent way to add a fun pop of color to a space without taking up your entire weekend. Use a quart of AURA® Interior Paint in a contrasting shade to create a bold statement and distinct areas. Use a similar hue to evoke a sense of continuity between rooms.
Spice Up a Small Space
Use a quart of paint to turn built-ins into a fun accent spot in a room or brighten up the walls of your pantry. You can also refresh your laundry room or a half bath or upgrade an existing accent wall. Want to make a creative statement on your staircase? A quart of paint can make your stairs a bit more fun and colorful in a few hours. ADVANCE® Interior Paint can withstand the high traffic stairs take without breaking a sweat.
Try a New Trim Color
If you want to try a new shade in a room but don’t want to commit to painting the whole space, consider using a quart of Benjamin Moore Regal Select® Interior Paint to update the trim. Baseboards, window frames, and crown molding all fall under the trim heading but feel free to choose only of these elements. Remember, it’s your house, and repainting isn't a significant undertaking if you’re not a fan of the final result.
