There is nothing better than paint to transform something. A room, a piece of furniture, an accent piece. You can reuse things over and over just with a new coat of paint. I tend to use Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint most often. Here are a few examples of some little tweaks I’ve done with paint.
To update this old master bathroom vanity…
I tried a few colors on the doors and chose Farrow & Ball London Stone.
Add some new knobs and a big change!
Orange bedroom be gone.
Picking a new wall color. A tie between Benjamin Moore Spring Iris (on left) and French Lilac.
Spring Iris won.
Soft and pretty.
In the same orange bedroom, I took the mirror from over the bureau…
Painted it Benjamin Moore White and hung it over the desk.
A cabinet made to hide all electronic equipment in a family room…
Is painted fun colors to match the throw pillows in the room.
Four of these metal bistro chairs were rusting away in my garage.
A couple of coats of Rust-Oleum glossy dark gray…
Now they are perfect for our kitchen eating area.
Small in scale and don’t take up as much space as our old chairs did.
A beach house bathroom gets a facelift with a cheery cherry red Benjamin Moore paint.
Beachy and fun.
A bulky kitchen pantry (far right) gets a new look…
I painted it Farrow & Ball Joa’s White, added some new cabinets…
A whole new look!
Remember the old pine TV cabinets like this one that we all had? I painted the outside black,
the inside green and made it into a bar in our living room.
I painted the inside AGAIN, Farrow & Ball Tallow, to match the new living room wall color.
An ancient hutch (left) was painted white with new knobs for storage in a clients office.
I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you to death. You get the drift. Definitely take a look at the 9 new Farrow & Ball colors just launched in celebration of the brands 70th anniversary year here. Absolutely gorgeous.
