painting old chair before and afterIt's no secret that paint is an incredibly easy, and affordable, way to make a dramatic change to a new space. Whether it's painting the walls, or just adding in some accents, incorporating some new colours can completely change the atmosphere of any room or space. So whether you who have just purchased a property and don't think you have the budget to decorate or are looking to buy a house, but are having trouble looking past the ugly colours; here are a few different ways that paint can help make your new house a home.

1: Painting Walls

This is probably the most obvious way to use paint to make a new home match your style. Depending on the colour you choose, you can make a room feel cozy and relaxed or elegant and chic. Painting your walls sets the tone for the whole room and take a boring room and make it your own.

2: Painting Old Furniture

Is your old furniture not matching your new home? Then paint it! Painting old furniture has become very popular in recent years, and for good reason. Not only is it often more affordable than purchasing all new furniture, but it is a great way to make different pieces of furniture match a new setting and each other. This may look like a lot of work, but it is actually easier than it seems. See the link below for a step by step guide.
