Creating and maintaining a space at home that you can fully enjoy takes some work and maintenance. And we know that can sometimes seem daunting. Here at Orchard, we’ve been challenging ourselves to think of quick and easy ways our neighbors can tackle the sort of projects at home that often seem daunting.
So, here is your mission: the one paint can challenge. What are all the little things you could do around your house with one can of paint and no deep painting expertise to make a big difference in your home? We believe that, with one can of paint, you can have an impact– bringing new joy to a space you’ll be enjoying every day. And with the right color choice, you can find several ways to bring your personality into your space without spending significant time and energy on the project.
And it’s easier than you think.
To kick off your brainstorming, here are five of the types of small paint jobs you can tackle with one can of paint to accentuate—and transform—your home.
1. Give your pots a makeover
Adding a little splash of color to your pots—especially with interesting lines and angles—can accentuate the beauty of your indoor plants and add personality to the space around it.
2. Turn your picture frames into a mini gallery
Bring new life to your old picture frames—or even pick some up at the local flea market or craft store—and turn them into a beautiful entryway or hallway display with the right paint choice.
3. Turn vintage luggage into furniture
If you have some beat up luggage no longer suitable for their original function (or want to go on the hunt to find some), stacking and giving them a paint job can transform them into an ideal nightstand or table.
4. Express yourself on the inside
If you’re looking for a place to add a bold dash of personality, the inside of dresser, vanity, or nightstand drawers can be a great place to introduce a bit of color.
5. Dip-dye your seat
One easy way to “dip your toe” into the dip-dying trend is to transform a stool. Tape off the same amount of the leg of each stool and then dip it in a bright hue to create a bold accent for your furniture.
These are just a few quick ideas to inspire you as you think about all the things that you could do to transform and accent your home with one can of paint. If you’re looking from more ideas, come into your local Orchard to talk to one of our paint specialists about other ideas that will inspire you.
We hope that you’ll find a color that is truly you. (And don’t forget about our paint color guarantee; we’ll find a way to match whatever color you need.) And then embark on the one paint can challenge.
If you take us up on the offer, be sure to take photos of the results and share it with us on Instagram and/or on your local store’s Facebook page. We want to see what you can do with one can of paint, to inspire us all to take those small, easy steps to try something new and give us a fresh reason to enjoy our homes.
