We have put together a list of our favorite spring painting projects with color suggestions from Pantone’s list of Spring and Summer Color Trends for 2019.
1. Spruce Up Your Front Door
Stand out from your neighbors and improve your home’s curb appeal by painting your front door a fresh new color. If you’re feeling inspired by nature, choose a vibrant green like Lime Zest or warm yellow-orange like Iced Mango. If you would prefer a deeper, richer tone try playful Purple Pak Choi or sophisticated Blueberry Pancake.
2. Makeover Your Fireplace
You don’t have to remodel your fireplace to give it a makeover. You can update it with a fresh coat of paint. Consider coating the mantel or bricks with in a sleek, dark tone line Black Lava or calming neutral like Quietude.
A fresh coat of paint on your kitchen cabinets can make them look brand new. You can create an elegant, New England look by pairing a dark tone—like Blueberry Pancake—on the bottom with a bright neutral—like Powdered Sugar—on the top.
4. Transform a Bathroom Vanity
You can brighten up a dark bathroom by painting the vanity in a light shade like Carnival Glass or happy tone like Blueberry Pie. Or create a contrast against a neutral wall with a rich charcoal like Black Lava.
5. Add Depth to a Bookcase
Painting the interior of a bookshelf is a great way to make it look more upscale or fun. If you’re painting the back panel of a bookcase or interior of built-in-shelves in a child’s room, consider a soft pink like Little Piglet or lovely lilac like Mystic Violet. If you’re painting shelves in your bedroom or a living space, consider a warm beige like Ancient Grain or a rich black.

You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a headboard. You can make a simple and timeless headboard by painting it onto the wall in a complementary color. The best color will depend on your décor but, if you want to make a bold statement, choose a vibrant tone like Pantone’s color of the year Living Coral.
