{friday finds: 7 fresh ideas for using up leftover paint}

Your freshly painted room is looking gorgeous. In fact, you love the color so much, you don’t want any of it to go to waste! Have no fear, we’re here with some great ideas for using every last drop.

1. Freshen up a lampshade with a wash of color.

Emily Henderson calls painting a shade with watered-down house paint “the simplest, most genius upgrade to a fabric lampshade that you can do.” She suggests a ratio of 1/3 water-based paint to 2/3 water.

2. Paint the back of your built-ins.

Painting the back wall gives shelving an added dimension — and gives you an excuse to use more of your favorite paint! Are you noticing more bookcases and built-ins featured in room sets, or is it just me?

{headboard program}

Your bedroom is a sacred place, a quiet retreat from the demands and chaos of the rest of the house. This room should be comfortable, relaxing, and most importantly, your bedroom should reflect you. Hirshfield’s is making it even easier to customize your bedroom with their new, exclusive Headboard Program.

Through the Headboard Program, customers have the ability to mix-and-match six headboard styles with any of the hundreds of program fabrics available for one flat cost. Or, customers can bring in their own fabric or choose from any of Hirshfield’s fabrics for a small additional cost.

If you’re looking to make an even bigger statement in the boudoir, you can purchase a customized headboard plus upholstered bed frame for a complete look.

“Choosing the right headboard can have a huge impact on the design of your space,” says Greg Yaghsezian of Hirshfield’s Design Resource. “If you invest in a great piece like a headboard, then spend a little on nightstands and other décor, you have automatically elevated the entire room to look much more luxurious and expensive.”

The Hirshfield’s Design Resource team is ready and wiling help you find the perfect headboard shape and fabric combination to suit your style. You can contact Hirshfield’s Design Resource at 612-374-8901.
