I really wanted to add some color to my new apartment without painting an entire room. My space had some pretty ugly door thresholds, why not revamp them with a bright color? A quick cure for the common boring room.
I had a bright shade of orange paint laying around that I couldn't find a use for. I had been trying to revamp my hideously tiled home office with pops of color in a rug, bright books, and even some awesome colorful artwork. I just couldn't shake these ugly floorboards that were positioned in each of the doorways. Since my desk chair and accent color is orange in the space, I figured it was finally time to put good use to my orange paint.
The result is just a little pop of color without that horrifying, "You painted a room bright orange?" blank stare I'd get from most of my guests. All-in-all, if you're looking to add a touch of fun to a room without the commitment of paint...just paint a floorboard or two!
