What a difference some PAINT makes!

It’s no surprise that I am a lover of paint! I dream about it! I collect it! And I’d happily spend a weekend in Home Depot staring at paint sample colors and dreaming my home turning into a rainbow.

Paint is the easiest way to make a drastic change for a minimal amount of money and never forget my biggest price saving tip! Be sure to check out “Oops paint” or “Mistint” pint that has been drastically marked down in price! Thsi is paint that the stores mix and then the customer changes their mind on. I have found some of the prettiest shades for $5 a gallon or less!

If you’d like to learn my easy steps for furniture refinishing be sure to check out my step by step tutorial on Furniture Refinishing! It’s really not as scary as you’d think!

I was so impressed by my readers and their refinishing success! Check out these amazing transformations!

Rebecca from “This Present Life” has the funnest new Master Bedroom. She refinished her head board in a shade I can never get enough of and the green on her walls screams “Good mornin’ beautiful!”

Check out her before…

And now check out the amazing after…

I LOVE Terry’s makeover on her 15 year old Bedroom set! It was such a huge change and made the set look so updated and fresh!

Look at the set before shw got her talented little hands on it…

And the after! AMAZING! What a difference a little paint makes right! For more photos and to go to the original post be sure to visit Cherished Treasures.

Over at Southern Seven Holly has spiced up a cabinet! Red is always a fun shade to add drama and make a strong statement! I just love this transformation!

The before cabinet is beautiful but it must have a sassy second personality that Holly knew of because…

Holly released it’s inner Super star and now it shines! I love how bold it is now against the wall and really is a stand alone beauty!

So work up some nerve and get to the paint store! Think about the endless possibilities that await!

    I love them all, especially the dresser. I love paint. My friends call me the 'painted lady'. And not because of my makeup. lol I sometimes go to work with a little paint or primer on my arms or legs that I didn't get off. lol Thanks for more inspiration!

    I'm going to have to take some inspiration from that great headboard. Not that I even have a headboard yet but once I do I'll have to explore all of the possibilities.
