Welcome to My Five Favorites with Pam of Simple Details, Kris of Driven By Decor, Jennifer of Dimples & Tangles and our super fun guest host, Kristin of Bliss At Home! Kristin is a talented designer and she and her husband have tackled many room makeovers (their built-in bookcases were the impetus for the ones I built in our living room!)
Before they moved last year Kristin redesigned their kitchen and filled it with beautiful details:

Kristin, we’re so glad to have you join us!
Here are just a few ways you can make a big impact with paint.
PAINT A ROOM A BOLD COLOR
My entire first floor is Simply White and I adore it, but every bedroom in our house is a bold hue. “Gentleman’s Gray” in our master is deliciously dark and cozy!
PAINT YOUR GARAGE OR BASEMENT STAIRS
One of the most high-impact paint projects I’ve ever done! The stairs coming in the house from the garage were unsealed and had taken a beating from New England’s snowy winters and muddy springs. Floor paint made such a difference!
PAINT “MERCURY” GLASS
Transform glass shelves, vases, or inexpensive pendant lights with spray paint!
Get the tutorial for making glass look like antique/mercury glass here.
PAINT YOUR OUTDATED OF THRIFT STORE SCORE LAMPS
Perfectly good ginger jar style lamps, with a sweet 80s floral motif (that surely matched a comforter, curtains and wallpaper in the original room!) are easily transformed with a good spray paint!

PAINT THE INSIDE OF A PIECE OF FURNITURE A FUN COLOR
Think: a china cabinet hutch, the back of a bookcase, a secretary with glass doors, a drawer!
There are a million ways to change up your home with the power of paint! What’s your favorite paint project that you’ve tackled??
