4 Fun Ways to Soak Up Your Leftover Paint in San Diego

 4 Fun Ways to Soak Up Your Leftover Paint in San Diego

The beauty of a small painting project is that you can go out on a limb. Your rush of creativity doesn’t require days to complete, so it’s not a huge investment or risk. It’s just plain fun. And, if it doesn’t turn out quite right, you can try it again from a different angle.

With that in mind, we thought we’d share a few bright (and stylish) ways to use up the extra paint you might just have hiding out in the corner of your basement or garage. As a side note, if you missed our blog about how to store paint effectively, be sure to take a look at it here!

Small Interior Painting Projects - Which Will You Try First?

  • Built-ins - Whether it’s a storage area or recessed shelving for your mystery novels, painting your built-ins is a wonderful way to add a splash of complementary color to a room.
  • Frames - It used to be that frames were the overlooked border for the main attraction: photos, paintings, etc. Now, however, they are very stylish, even with nothing inside them. Taking it a step further, painting frames with bold accent colors is a fantastic way to add an eye-catching design element to your home.
  • Accents - Walls, doors, or even trim can look stunning when painted a different color. Take a look here to find a little extra inspiration: accent wall colors.
  • Furniture - Repurposing is a popular way to get years of enjoyment out of a salvaged piece. Whether it be a bureau, end table, or rocking chair, painting is a cost-effective, fun way to add a little customized, modern style to old craftsmanship.

How About a Fun Back-to-School Painting Project with Your Kids?

Another great way to use up a little paint is to simply have fun with your kids! Decorate a chair together with bright colors and designs, or even designate a section of wall in their room where they can let their own creativity run free. Just like us adults, children love to make their spaces their own and a reflection of their personality. Plus, you'll get a million cool points as a parent.
