1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Seeing green...I need color help! on: July 13, 2008 10:04:31 AM
I'm usually a high contrast person when it comes to colors-- I like my accessories to really POP against the walls. So I generally take my wall color and go straight to the opposite side of the color wheel for accessories. For example, my kitchen is apple green, and most of my small appliances are red (red would probably work well in your space as well). Orange could also be fun.

Here's a couple of examples:

Could you just buy some thin wooden decorative trim (like half rounds) and paint it teal? Then you could just nail it right to the wall.

Holy crap, that's fantastic!

You don't think I could rent him for a day or two, do you?

This would be a great solution for renters who can't change their tile.

Sand it and give it a coat or two of primer, and paint should stick fine. I would put a coat or two of polyurethane over the paint to give it some durability.

Hobby Lobby also carries some. I've seen toy chests there before, thought I don't know if they'd qualify as "giant".

Good luck! Be sure to post pictures of your progress!

PS: Just in case you have a hard time finding a good robin's egg blue paint, we painted our living room in "Frosty" by Valspar, and we love it.  Smiley

Ooh, that's a good point about the contact paper, tamilyn.

Shows how much kitchen experience I have  Roll Eyes.

And I second the suggestion for gel stains-- they're so easy to use, and you can use them on just about anything. Why didn't I think of that?
