Ace Hardware has provided free paint samples. I was also compensated for my time and this blog post. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware.
I’m a renter. I like being a renter. It’s someone else’s problem when the AC stops working. I’m not responsible for watering the lawn. I can leave town and not worry about trash pickup.
But that also means I’m limited on how I can personalize my space and I can’t paint my walls all those bold bright colors that I crave.
What I can do is add pops of strategically placed color, like this jewelry box painted with Clark+Kensington’s Vivid Blooms from Ace Paint Studio and their 30 Days of Color collection. It didn’t take me long to settle on Vivid Blooms, today’s color of the day, as my color of choice because it’s a rich and impactful color that compliments the greys and whites in my bedroom and because Ace is known as the authority on color.
- Clark+Kensington paint in Vivid Blooms from the Ace Paint Studio
- Small foam paintbrush
- Wooden jewelry box
- Embossed felt
- Skull charms
I simply gave the jewelry box two quick coats of Clark+Kensington’s Vivid Blooms, letting the paint dry between coats. Then I adhered the skull charms to the lid with glue and folded my felt to fit inside. That’s it! It couldn’t have taken more than an hour from start to finish! It’s a perfect size for bracelets and rings and Vivid Blooms ads just the spark that I wanted to my tabletop.
