25 creative ideas that only need a can of paint!

When you want to make the most of your limited budget for decorating, paint is the best option at your disposal. If you want to use your purchase even more than before, try to use the same can of paint you bought in several small projects and don’t finish it all in one big project. Whether you have a full can or want to do something with the last drops left from one of your old paint cans, you’ll find something here to inspire you. These 25 creative color ideas have suggestions for every room in the house.


  1. Bedroom + lots of color = patterned wall

If you have some color (and a lot of patience) besides your can of white paint, this project is perfect for you. Draw the pattern you want on the wall using paint glue (I suggest doing this a week before you start painting). To achieve the best result, first use one of the colors and let it dry before moving on to the next color.


  1. Bedroom + small amount of paint = plaster decoration.

Grab your paint can and get started.
