You don't always need to completely overhaul a room to infuse some interest and excitement into your decorating. Sometimes you can make a huge impact with less than a quart of paint and in less than 20 minutes.
In this little blog-series, we'll explore some simple ways you can add some "pop" to your decorating without taking a "hit" in your bank account.
Today, we're going to talk about a simple concept: painting behind vases, pots or other art pieces you might have sitting in a corner or against a wall. These items sit in our rooms day in and day out and they usually add some color and some visual interest. However, over time, they fade into the background.
Well, an easy way to bring them back into the foreground is to paint an area behind them. Simply mimic the shape of the art piece, or paint a simple oval behind it in a complimentary or coordinating color.
It's a quick project, will take you no more than a few "brush-fulls" of paint, and will usually take you all of 20 minutes (including clean-up!). But the impact and visual appeal it brings to your home is boundless.
Get creative . . . start thinking outside the box . . . and see what you can come up with. Next time, we'll talk about another quick project.
