Add a pop of color into your space this Spring! Whether it’s a piece of furniture or an accent pillow, bold colors
like teal or yellow, for example, make great additions to neutral colors in the home. For my bedroom, I went with neutrals but I wanted to add in some teal to make it pop.
The wall color in my bedroom is Mountain Air (Behr, Home Depot) with white trim. The headboard is a tufted microfiber suede material in a sand color and the bedding is white. For accent pillows, I’ve added a Mr. & Mrs. pillow in a burlap fabric and some furry white pillows as well. Basically, mostly neutrals.
Next, I have a dresser which I found in IKEA, in a vintage grey color. I changed the knobs to crystal knobs to give it a more vintage vibe (Home Depot). I did not buy the matching dressers. Instead, I wanted to get two different vintage style dressers to give it an eclectic feel. I’m not into the matchy furniture look.
Off to the thrift stores I went in search of some unique side tables. While thrifting, I scored one for only $10 and the other I found at a Home Goods for around $35. The Home Goods table was left as is (an antique off-white color) but the thrift find became a bolder color. I found the perfect spray paint in the perfect teal color.
Add a Pop of Color Into your Space
How I did it…
Night Stand – vintage thrift (a steal -bought for only $10!)
Paint – the Home Depot (2 cans of spray paint plus a can of primer at about $4 each)
- Wipe clean
- Sand lightly, wipe clean again
- Prime and wait to dry
- Apply 2 coats of paint (give time to dry in between)
I removed the knobs and drawers and painted those separately. I also carefully covered metal parts with newspaper to keep its original finish.
The total cost of project: under $25! Not bad when you compare to buying something like this at a store for well over $100 🙂
