When it comes to studying, nothing can be more important than creating a comfortable, organised and aesthetically pleasing environment. This will let your mind breath and declutter your thoughts. A relaxed space is proven to foster better learning.

So how do you create this space? Simple. Just add paint.

In the above video, we took a few pieces of timber furniture and DIY transformed them into a living, breathing study area that is ideal for anyone heading back to school this season. All we had to do was add paint.

For a more detailed look at each project that made up this back to school DIY study area:

Study Desk and Chair
Wire Grid Hanging Board
Chalkboard Calendar
Bookshelves

The back wall in this project was painted in Berger Octavious Oak and the timber pieces were undercoated with Berger Triple Prep Oil Based.

I moved into my new home almost a year ago and like most people I wanted to deck it out straight away so I started with the largest space in the home, our formal lounge room. I opted for a clean sophisticated look and chose Dulux Antique White U.S.A. for the walls, laid down coffee coloured floorboards and introduced white furniture throughout.

At Inspirations Paint, a good deck reno is one of our favourite projects. If its time to give your deck some TLC with a makeover but not quite sure where to start, check out our favourite Aussie decks!
