As I make plans to do some painting in my office, and the fate of the chalkboard wall sways in the wind, I’ve been exploring unique ways to dress up a wall. I won’t necessarily be using any of these specific ideas, but they did get my creative juices flowing. Hope they also inspire you!
Do you need a pop of color in your neutral space, but don’t want to paint a whole wall? Try painting just a door or a band of color close to the ceiling.
Or how about painting just the trim of a window? This yellow color instantly makes me happy.
Are your hardwood floors in need of a refresh? Instead of refinishing them, work with their character and add some paint. I just adore the color combination here. The geometric patterns are so whimsical and interesting.
You can also take some inspiration from Joy the Baker. The geometric wall treatment in her home office is fabulous. Plus, the color combo is ridiculous (in a really good way. You may remember that I helped her pick out the colors.)
Check out this pink-inspired ombre wall. It’s so fun and playful. I’ve also been a little obsessed with pink these days. It may just be my next gold. Watch out.
Lastly, this paint treatment for an outdoor space has always been a favorite of mine. Talk about cheerful. I think it would work wonderfully inside, too. Using less-saturated colors would make it a little more subtle for an indoor space.
Okay, so now that I’ve given you some great ideas for painting, I want to tell you about the set of seven Show Me How videos that Glidden has created to teach and guide us in getting the job done efficiently and effectively.
As you know, I’m a blogger for Glidden and their painting inspiration site My Colortopia. For the videos, they teamed up with the fabulous Lindsay Ballard, a fellow My Colortopia Team Member and the woman behind Makely Home. The videos give you all of the tips, tricks, and tools you need to successfully paint a room.
