Top Five Weekend House Painting Projects

Rachel Williams

We all love a little color. One of the best ways to add a touch of color at home this season is by repainting smaller items like doors, chairs and cabinets. Unlike bigger San Diego painting projects, choosing a smaller project not only makes finishing easier, but also gives homeowners like you a little more leeway when it comes to color.


You wouldn't repaint your entire kitchen yellow, but you might start with a set of wooden chairs.


You wouldn't paint your whole living room black, but you might paint black patterns on an accent wall or change your coffee table up a little.


When it comes to residential and commercial house painting, Brad Stoner Painting believes that no project is too small. So what have you got to lose this season? Check out our list of the top five weekend painting projects sure to spark some interest this season!


#1. Repaint your front door.


Unlike an entire San Diego exterior paint job, repainting your front door takes a little less time and lot less money.


As a homeowner, there’s no better way to express yourself than by adding a touch color to your entryway. This season, try a bright red or a fall-colored orange to spruce up your home and add some extra curb appeal.


#2. Add a little color to cabinet knobs.


While your plans to remodel the entire kitchen might have gone out the window this holiday season, who says you can’t spruce things up a little? Even painting something as small as the knobs on your cabinets can make a big difference.


Don’t have the time or the energy for do-it-yourself projects? Stop by your local hardware store and pick out your favorite set of knobs or handles for an easier kitchen makeover.


#3. Spruce up your baseboards.


Are your walls bringing you down? Try looking a little lower this season and start with your home’s baseboards. Unlike an entire San Diego interior painting job, baseboards are a little more manageable but often make all the difference!


Just don’t forget to protect your flooring underneath by laying out tarps and taping off the bottoms of your baseboards.


#4. Make your mailbox pop!


What better way to brighten up your home this season than by repainting your mailbox? While most homeowners tend to stick with traditional paint colors, house painting doesn’t have to be all black and white. Spruce up your mailbox this weekend with a fresh coat of your favorite color.


#5. Create an accent wall.


(This just might be our favorite tip for homeowners hoping for residential house painting, but facing a time crunch.)


Accent walls create big changes with minimal effort. Instead of painting an entire living room, adding a single accent wall requires much less commitment and is a simple fix should your love of that new color be short-lived.


Have we given you enough to think about this weekend? We hope you’ll take our mini paint projects to heart as you work on sprucing up your home this season! (And if you need help, Brad Stoner Painting is only a phone call away!)
