Here’s proof that a little bit of color can make a huge difference.
The Walls of Your Coat Closet
While most hallway closets are usually packed so full there’s not an inch of wall to be seen, give the walls a coat of bright green paint and you’ll want to show ’em off.
Inside Your Vintage Chest
While this flea market find might look weathered and worn on the outside, the inside is a very different story. Stash pillows and blankets inside for a burst of happiness when you go to pull them out in your living room.
The Edges Of Your Door
If you’re traditional when it comes to the exterior color of your home and want to stick with a plain white door, we get it. But here’s a compromise you can’t refuse: Paint the sides a bright color for the best of both worlds.
Inside Your Kitchen Cabinets
A sleek white kitchen is super stylish. But if you want to add a touch of personality, add color inside your organizers — this looks especially gorgeous when your dishes are white and pop against your color choice.
On Your Door Bell
The tiniest glimpse of a whimsical color takes the formality out of an entry in the most charming of ways.
Around Dresser Drawers
Give a wooden dresser a modern update by painting all of the surfaces except the front of the drawers. The colorful case sets off the unique grain of the exposed wood.
Inside Desk Drawers
Sometimes you might need plain white surroundings to spark your creative juices, other times you might prefer lots of color — it’s a good thing this desk solution means you don’t have to pick between the two.
Behind Doors on a Hutch
Who says your fine china should be tame and stuffy? Add a coat of bold teal to the back of your hutch to modernize this traditional (or some would say boring!) storage space.
Along Canvas Edges
This black and white canvas art is just begging for a little pizzazz — and a red trim around the sides certainly does the trick. Match it to flowers or a lamp shade to make it pop even more.
On the Back Panel of a Bookcase
The best way to show off your book collection? Stack ’em in front of a bold blue wall. We especially love how the paint inside this organizer makes what used to be a skinny pantry look like a built-in bookcase.
Along Your Window Trim
Don’t wait until the sun comes up to let your windows play their sunny role in your home. A bright yellow paint along a window frame will make sure this light source is always bright.
Hidden in an Armoire
The best thing about this DIY is that it looks like your grandfather’s armoire from the outside, but your little brother’s from the inside. Genius.
Your Dresser Drawers
From the front this black dresser is chic and classic, but open up the drawers and look to the side and you’ll find an organizer that’s anything but expected.
