You Can Paint That?!

Whether you're planning to move later this year and need to freshen up your home before it goes on the market, or you've just moved in and want to make the décor your own in your new place, you no doubt recognize the transformative abilities that a few coats of paint can make on walls, doors, cabinets and their hardware. Here are a few more places you can completely transform with paint.

  • Floors. Old wooden floors and stairs that have been sanded down one too many times can be transformed with latex enamel floor paint, while old vinyl floors can be sanded and then brightened up with a porch/floor paint. Even ceramic tiles with some sanding and prep, can be painted at a fraction of the cost and work involved to replace them.

  • Carpets. Believe it or not, that short-pile carpet with the mystery stains that you simply don't want to spend money to replace right now can be given another life with upholstery spray paint!

  • Appliances. Why replace a perfectly good stove and fridge when you renovate, just because they no longer match with your kitchen? Instead, use a heat-resistant appliance paint or a liquid stainless steel application to achieve the look of new, for only the price of paint.

Of course, follow the guidance of a paint professional before trying any of these projects at home. Recognize the crucial necessity of pre-paint preparation for the type of surface you're working on, whether that involves sanding, priming or any other process, and be sure to use the appropriate paint for the surface you're transforming.
