If you ask me, there are few things that a little paint can’t fix. Got an old table? Slap a fresh coat on it and it looks brand-new. Boring wall? Yeah, it works there, too! But it takes a true innovator to think outside the box and find places you might not expect paint to make such a strong impact.

These people all fall under that category! Don’t think that a bright color can totally change a room from inside a cabinet? Think again.

1. Make a window even brighter with a brush of yellow.

2. An all-white kitchen is nice — but a pop of color inside the cabinets is arguably way more fun.

3. Make a good first impression by giving your doorbell a new look.

4. Have a smile on your face every time you open your desk.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251602_56eb95d6c4b4c”, auid: “537251602” });

5. In fact, decorate the drawers of just about anything and it’s instantly more exciting!

6. Look forward to selecting your outfit for work with this armoire upgrade.

7. This 10-minute tutorial subtly changes the look of your door.

8. Frame a canvas with a pop of color for a fun look from every angle.

var OX_ads = OX_ads || []; OX_ads.push({ slot_id: “537251604_56eb95d6c4cd4”, auid: “537251604” });

9. Vintage trunk on the outside, party on the inside!

10. Display your china in style.

11. Make your coat closet a thing to show off, not hide.

12. Give everyone something to look at when they’re walking through your halls.

13. Go vintage with paint and some selective sanding.
