Paint An Accent Wall
Do you have walls that are all the same color? Did you know that you could transform a room by just painting one wall? This is called an accent wall, and it can deliver a stunning visual design flow in any home. The key is to pick a color that is not too similar to the existing colors that you have in your wall. Test this notion out by looking for inspiration online. Seek out accent wall designs, and you could very well have your next creative project to do at home.
Here’s an idea that many creative people have found to be amazing. Whether you do it alone or with your family, find furniture pieces by going to thrift stores. You want to purchase something that is made of wood, and has good overall structure. Once you purchase this, you will want to strip down the exterior with sand paper. Sand things down a bit, and then reinforce any joints by adding screws, staples or nails, whichever fits the overall design. After you’ve done this, you have a furniture piece that you can paint, varnish, or do just about anything with. You can be as creative as you want, and either use this in your home, give it away, or sell it.
There you have it, two simple creative projects that you can get started on right now. They don’t cost much, and they let your imagination fly.
