Before I jump into all of my hot tips, I wanted to remind you that I live in a rental. We moved into a new rental in the New Year, and as of right now I only have two rooms completed. The whole house is currently being transformed one room at a time. My goal is to decorate the “main” rooms of the house by summertime. Talk about a deadline, right? I have some other room and furniture transformations scheduled in the months to come that I plan on sharing, but for now, I am taking it one project at a time.I wanted to share with you my latest paint project and how I was able to choose the perfect paint colors for this project. Paint color is something I have hard time choosing because I do not like to repaint furniture or walls. I like to get it right the first time. Anyhow, you see that stool? I have been putting off painting it for a while, and now that I am finally diving into decorating my rental, I actually have a purpose and plan for what I envision for these stools. I have a very eclectic style, and I love to mix and match traditional decor with trendy colors and pieces. With these stools, I wanted a change that ensures that they would not be boring; I wanted them to be eye-catching, standout pieces. I have a space in my hall where these stools would look perfect, and I plan to use the stools to accent the wall art that I plan to create. With some simple steps and some help from Ace Hardware’s The Paint Studio, I was able to transform these stools using paint samples.
