Summer is the perfect time to tackle those long overdue DIY projects! The warm sun and blue skies make for happy days spent creating and transforming your home. We have a few bright and fast summer project ideas to share with you so let’s dig in!
PATIOS & GARDENS
We spend a lot of time outside in our patio, backyards and gardens – not to mention entertaining our friends and family. Two of our blog friends share their Metal Effects projects with us…
Laura from Pet Scribbles upgraded her planters with the Copper Reactive Metallic Paint and Green Patina Aging Solution back during the winter time. In the meantime, she recently wrote a post on the durability of her Metal Effects garden planters. “These planters were subjected to snow, sleet, freezing rain, ice cold temps…and the paint has no chips or cracks. No signs that they have been outdoors for 4+ months. They look like the day I painted them!” Thanks, Laura – and we think they look great in your garden!
Is there anything better than driving up to a well-tended home? Here are some great small project ideas with big impact!
Design and color changes on walls and ceilings make a fantastic change but two bloggers also made strides with tackling simple trimwork and furniture!
Dana from Made with Love had a metallic dresser makeover that now makes her feel “like a princess” when she gets ready in the morning! She mixed our Steel Gray and Snowflake from our Metallic Paint Collection to get to her perfect color.
Canadian designer Cynthia Weber wanted to surprise her parents with a living room and dining room re-do for their 50th wedding anniversary. Using a blend of Warm Silver and Champagne colors from our Matte Metallics to paint the crown molding, she added a little bit of luxe to their beautiful, traditional home. We love it!
