11 Ways to Use Paint in DIY Projects
11 Ways to Use Paint
Paint is an inexpensive update for projects large and small — and if you’ve got a project, there’s a paint for that!
You can start small with something like a wood number (by Vintage Romance Style) — nailheads are great for dressing up anything!
Or you can use chalkboard paint on just about anything, too — love these dipped chalkboard plant pots from Lemon Thistle.
Paint and mod-podge are a great combination for something like these coasters from This Design Journal:
Or I personally really love the look of paint over stained wood, like this simple harvest sign from The Turquoise Home:
And how to store all that paint? Crafters will love this paint storage shelf from Create and Babble!
And did you know you can paint fabric? And not just fabric, but those inexpensive fabric drawers and totes that are great for kids storage? Rather Square did!
You can dress up just about anything with paint, especially if you’re ready for a bold pattern — like this painted bulletin board from The Colored Door.
And get creative with paint and old furniture to repurpose it — this headboard turned quilt rack from Brepurposed is so cute, and so creative!
If you’re working with MDF, it can be so frustrating to paint. That’s why I LOVE this tip from Pneumatic Addict!
Painting kitchen cabinets gives you a BIG change for a relatively small price tag — Mommy Envy used chalk paint and the colors look great!
And, if you’re looking to make a really REALLY BIG change — Suzy over at Simply Vintageous painted and stenciled her floors. WOW!
Thanks for sharing your projects! And I just have to add my FAVORITE paint technique: color washing! When you love visible wood grain but you also love color, this is the way to go. I used it on our easy carved sign and our Christmas advent calendar and on our yellow Swedish mora clock — and I even used it over an existing stain to adjust the tone to the color I wanted to match my other doors after we built our dutch barn door.
