Weekend Wood Paint Project Ideas

Posted on November 11, 2019

If you had the home to yourself all weekend? What wood you do? These wood and wood paint projects should get you busy, creative and productive all weekend!

Repaint the Door
Your home’s door is one of the first things that a guest sees when they come to visit. Take control of that impression with wood paint color that matches the vibe that you want your guest to channel. A fresh coat of wood paint and a splash of color on door panels hides stains from years of use and abuse. And why stop there? The entryway has to back your color of choice! For your inspiration, check out a feature on design inspirations for entryway.

Revive a Weathered Fixture
Probably one of the usual woodwork projects, painting new life on old or weathered furniture comes with a few therapeutic benefits. Be sure to set aside some time for planning though. How much paint will you need? Better yet, is it wood paint that you need or wood stain? Remind yourself of the dos and don’ts when painting old furniture.

Frame the Window 
This one will easily fit your schedule. Window dressings don’t start and end with curtains. Painting the trim or frame of your window creates visual interest and draws the eyes. It highlights your window by creating a contrast against walls while inviting more natural light.

Cube Photo Holders
Add a sentimental touch to your desk and surfaces with your personal, happiest moments on display. All you need are a little wood, some spray paint and a touch of creativity. Check out more details here:
