When most people think of transformations with paint, they think of furniture. Turn any old piece that you find in a thrift store or even on the curb into something special with a little paint. Try your favorite color or a mixture of a few colors. Don’t forget the knobs! They can be painted as well.

You don’t have to stop with your indoor furniture! Think about those items outdoors that may need a refresh. Furniture, pots, planters, and more can all benefit from a coat of paint. The harsh winter often wreaks havoc on your outdoor items, so spring is a perfect time to plan an outdoor makeover.

Don’t stop with just regular paint. Chalkboard paint is easy to use and can really make a statement. Think about organizing your home with a bit of chalkboard paint on a few surfaces. Using chalkboard gives a great contrast with the black but also allows you to easily change things up by just erasing it away.
