    Go big or go (to a boring) home.

    1. Make your stairs pop.

    Go to town with every leftover paint color you have.

    2. Add GLITTER to your walls.

    This adds some really cool texture and sparkle to your paint. Check out this post and see how it looks here. This looks super cute as an accent wall in a kids room, too.

    3. Make your whole room ombre.

    Do it with this wallpaper, or a DIY paint job.

    4. Make a copper headboard.

    Like the one from this hotel.

    5. Make an entire living wall.

    6. Turn your backsplash into a Disco Ball.

    Not only will your kitchen look like it's ready to party at any given moment, it's also a great way to bring more light into a small space. Get them here.

    7. Replace your grass with creeping thyme.

    It's easier to take care of and it's PURPLE. What more reason do you need? Get started here.

    8. Paint your radiator and pipes a SUPER bright accent color.

    You can't really hide them, so you might as well run with it. See how they did it here.

    9. Turn your banister into a play-able harp.

    See how them made it here.

    10. Make a rainbow stained-glass door.

    This one is made from PANTONE samples. See more here.

    Or your countertop or your floor. It just makes cents. See how to do it here.
