Rainy Day Painting Projects

Rainy Day Painting Projects

Is the rain done yet? In Northern VA, we have been on the receiving side of an endless amount of rain. Between random rain storms and hurricane Florence, we have seen our fair share of rain.

While the rain is good for the grass and the trees, it is not good for outdoor home improvement projects!

While your outdoor improvements may be on hold, here are a few fun indoor projects Color Expressions Painting does, in rain or shine.

1-    Painting an accent wall

Update the look of your living room or home office, by adding in an accent wall. Accent walls are such a fun way to bring more personality to a space. Accent walls can be a bright solid color, or a fun wallpaper pattern. Accent walls don’t always follow the conventional rules so they can be whatever you want!

2 – Painting the kitchen cabinets

An easy kitchen project is updating the cabinets. Replacing existing cabinets can be pretty expensive and time consuming. An easier and cheaper option is to paint them. You can really upgrade the look on your entire kitchen with a new coat of paint on your cabinets. We love taking light wood cabinets and either painting them white or dark brown.

3 – Installing Crown Molding

Has your bedroom or living room felt like it was missing something? If one of your spaces feels like it needs a little something to complete it, crown molding could be the answer. It is a really easy way to elevate your space. Adding crown molding is also a relatively quick project.

4 – Painting Furniture

Another quick and easy project to tackle on a rainy day is to paint a piece of furniture. Do you have an old table that could use a paint pick me up? Or maybe a bench you want to be a focal point in the hall, but it just isn’t the right color. These are quick and easy changes that can have a lasting effect on the overall aesthetic in your home.
