Unleash Your Weekend Warrior

Anything’s possible when the weekend rolls around! If you’ve been itching to get a jump start on a growing collection of DIY projects, weekends are the perfect time to shorten your to-do list. Pick a few projects that can be completed in a day or two, so you can enjoy a freshly painted space by the time Monday rolls around.

Update an Entryway Closet

Have a messy closet in need of a re-do? Look at it in a new light by taking off the doors to create an open space that makes organization a top priority. Our Entryway Closet Update adds a splash of inviting color that’s great for making your refreshed closet a fun focal point. Since an entryway sets the tone for your home, this project is a great way to kick off a weekend of DIY projects.

Make Your Half Bath a Haven

Impress guests with a half bath they won’t want to leave. With a fresh coat of paint and a few new accessories, half baths can take on an entirely new look all in a weekend’s work. If you’d prefer to create an energizing effect, light colors are great for giving your space an awakened look. You can also add a new mirror to reflect more light for an even brighter look.

Add Color to Your Kitchen Island

It’s the center of your kitchen – let it steal the show. Whether you’re sharing breakfast or entertaining your closest friends, the kitchen island is a gathering place that’s waiting for a splash of color. Not sure where to start? Take some color cues from your kitchen. If you already have a room full of color, you can easily pull inspiration from an existing shade whether it’s artwork on the wall or a pot on the stove.

  6. I like the colors shown above. I have recently done three projects using SW paints through my volunteering orgranzation’s efforts. All of the individuals who received painting efforts were so taken about the SW brand. You should have seen the smiles on their faces. My next project will employ some of the colors shown above.

  7. I’m curious about the door in the entryway photo. Is that one of SW’s options for color? Thank you!

  8. I currently have clarey sage green from kitchen to family room (house is open concept) I want to introduce another color to work with the green, with gray and navy tones. I thought to introduce a gray but needs to be a warm gray, or some sort of blue. Any suggestions?

      Hello Beth, considering the other colors in your space, a Greige (grey+beige) would be the best fit for your space. Check out:
      Modern Gray SW 7632 Mindful Gray SW 7016
      Dorian Gray SW 7017 Skyline Steel SW 1015

  9. Hello, I saw something called Beyond Paint for kitchen cabinets that you do not have to sand before painting, you just have to make sure that the cabinets are completely cleaned before painting. Does Sherwin Williams carry anything like this?

  10. What kind of paint and technique to paint an ugly red brick house a lighter color?

    Glenda Jenkins
  11. In the bath pic, what is the baseboard trim color?

  12. I love color stories and blog shares for inspiration within emails and online. My local store associates are always SO professional and helpful, both over the phone and in person! SW is our go to paint shop for all of our home updates and touch ups.

      Thank you! We’re glad to help guide you on your painting journey. Good luck and let us know if you have any questions.

  13. Hello, I am having a hard time choosing a light grey or neutral tone for my living room. I loved agreeable gray but it seemed dark in an already small and badly lit living room…the living room set is blue HELP!!!

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hello Tisha, if Agreeable Gray is too dark for you, check out these lighter greys. Look at:
      Egret White SW 7570
      Incredible White SW 7028
      Toque White SW 7003

  14. Do you know what colors the beams were stained? Is there any help in seeing stain colors?

  15. My house has almost exclusively East/West exposure- and of that majority West. I need something cool and neutral but with depth. I am thinking Fleur De Sel but worried it will look too cold in morning light in my open Kitchen/LR/DR and too cold in the afternoon in my Entryway. The color has to be carried up my narrow stairwell. My other colors through the house are Filmy Green, Moody Blue, Comfort Gray, and Tradewind. What do you suggest?

      Hi Robin! Fleur de Sel SW 7666 is too cold and too light to do much for your palette. Consider instead using either Spare White SW 6203 or Sea Salt SW 6204 – either of these would work with your existing colors.
