Weekend Makeover: 5 Paint Projects to Transform your Space

Updating your home does not have to be all or nothing. You might be planning a major remodel, but you don’t have to live with a room you hate while you wait. A few affordable changes can have a major impact. Today we are sharing five paint projects you could do this weekend that will refresh your space.

Paint the Floor


In this bedroom, we created a fresh clean space on a budget. Instead of installing high-end hardwood floors, we used affordable bamboo and then coated it with white epoxy. They have held up great and don’t show scratches or major wear and tear. Don’t live with beat up wood or cheap vinyl that you hate, paint over it in a color you love for an instant room refresh.


Paint your Furniture



A new dining table and chairs can cost a small fortune. Here, we saved money by buying an affordable table in dark wood but got the light airy look we wanted with glossy white paint. The benches came with the table, but we elevated the look by adding two statement dining chairs. Paint your own old furniture or shop the thrift stores for good bones and make it new.


Paint the Door

Here we shared how a painted front door can create instant curb appeal, but you might not have thought about painting your interior doors. In our Arboles Project Bathroom we painted the door Benjamin Moore Smoke Embers. The gray adds drama and keeps the white bathroom from feeling stark. Painting your own door adds a fun new pop and only takes a few hours.


Paint the Walls



If your room is feeling blah, dig in and paint the walls now. Bright white can make everything feel clean and new, while a color can completely change the mood of your space. Here, in this Benjamin Moore bedroom transformation, dark and dramatic creates a fresh sophistication. To see more of this teen bedroom makeover, read here.


Paint the Cabinets

Originally dark wood, the cabinets paired with the dark floors felt heavy and dated. Painting the cabinetry refreshed the entire space, leaving it bright and airy. We painted the upper cabinets Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee and the lowers Benjamin Moore Van Courtland Blue.

Although painting the cabinets yourself is a lot of work, it is definitely doable and can make your entire kitchen feel new.
