At Clare, we’re on a mission to make paint shopping easy and inspiring. And what’s easier than a paint project you can pull off in an afternoon? Our new paint in quart-sized containers is perfect for small paint projects and quick weekend updates. We’re so excited to debut paint quarts and see you put them to use—our community has been asking for them since we launched!
Need some DIY inspiration? Here are a few small paint project ideas to inspire your next refresh:
Give your furniture a facelift.

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.

Interior doors are often overlooked when it comes to paint—but they’re such a great way to add a splash of color to your space! Grab a quart of paint in a color that coordinates with your decor to bring an entirely new look to your room.
Spruce up a small space.

Upgrade with an accent wall.

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.
