Whether it’s a basic piece from IKEA or a hand-me-down in need of help, our paint quarts are just the thing to give furniture a fresh new look. Apply a couple coats to a side table, desk, bookshelf, dresser—almost anything is fair game! Just be sure to sand, prime, and use at least two coats of paint for consistent color. Want a glossier look? Try our trim paint for a subtle, semi-gloss finish that easily wipes clean.

Try a new color for your trim.

Make your walls and windows pop with a fresh coat of trim paint. Pick a color different from your walls to create a contrasting look, or use the same shade in a semi-gloss with eggshell walls for a streamlined look that has subtle variation. Try it on crown molding, baseboards, and any other millwork!

Use our paint quarts to redo a door.

Upgrade with an accent wall.

A paint quart is all you need to for an accent wall project like this one featuring a trendy arch painted in Clare’s Good Jeans blue paint.

If you can’t quite commit to a room full of color, an accent wall is the perfect way to introduce a punchy dose to your space. Paint a whole wall in your favorite bold hue, or opt for a half-painted wall color blocked with a foolproof neutral. Want to step out of the box? Paint geometric shapes in fresh shades to create a focal point in any room.
