Today’s project is all about being inspired by color! It’s amazing what a simple pop of color can do to an entire room. I’m excited to show you such an example today! Watch how I turn an old boring computer armoire into a craft hutch as part of Ace Hardware’s 31 Days of Color, using Valspar paint!
This month Ace Hardware is sharing 31 different colors on 31 different days including inspirational projects using that day’s color.
Ace will be giving away free samples of the Color of the Day to the first 1,000 online entrants at ThePaintStudio.com starting at 12pm ET each day.
Plus, enter the 31 Days of Color Sweepstakes daily for a chance to win a $10,000 paint makeover and daily $50 gift cards.
The paint I chose for this challenge is the color Steelhead Redd. I wanted a paint that was great for indoors so I went with Valspar Optimus interior paint and I love how it has primer in it with their OptiColor Pigment Technology. It’s easy to clean and has a low odor which is fabulous for painting inside the house. I was pleased with the vibrant color and the clean, crisp finish I was going for. One gallon of this will cover about 400 sq feet.
My vision for this armoire was to turn it into a much needed craft organization space for my bulky craft items such as my sewing machine and digital craft cutting machine. I also wanted an area to store small items in boxes and a storage crate for my paper and vinyl. Here’s what I came up with…
I am so happy with how the Steelhead Redd goes with the aqua baskets and black chalkboard! It really is the perfect color for my armoire!
Now I have a fun, colorful space that brightens up the room and I can close the doors to hide any craft clutter my heart desires!
I added a simple cork board that I use for inspirational notes and quotes. The chalkboard is my to-do list and reminds me of any craft supplies I’m running out of.
The small photo buckets are the perfect size for my scissors, markers, adhesives, embellishments, and more. I love how the baskets hold my bulkier things like fabric, embroidery hoops, etc.
Storing a large sewing machine can be very tricky and I’m thrilled that it fits into my armoire perfectly!
My husband walked down the stairs and the first thing he said was, ” I love the color!” I’m happy to say the makeover was a huge success.
I thought it would be fun to share my very favorite paint tip that saves me a lot of time and hassle. It’s so simple. I line my paint trays with tinfoil so I can easily discard of them when I’m finished using that color. Saves time and I don’t need to spend money on those removable tray covers!
