Adding a Splash of Colour and Getting Organized

organizing wires with washi tape
We added Fusion paint to a few things around our home to add a splash of colour and used Washi tape in functional ways in our home to keep us organized.

I have a few appliances in my kitchen that have similar plug points and we have a hard time wondering which plug is for what appliance. To make things easy and functional, I used a variety of Washi tape and a sharpie to organize. By using a piece of Washi tape and writing on it with a permanent black sharpie, I was able to quickly organize the plugs. This simple organization and labelling makes a big difference in our home!
Another fun woodworking project we did was creating a small bedside floating shelf. We painted it with Upper Green Fusion paint, and added decorative tape to the edges to make it not only pop, but most importantly to make sure no one gets scratched by the rough edges in the wood.
We also transformed a wooden window frame by adding the Bedford Fusion paint. This quick paint work totally changed the space and made the old window frame get a new look to go along with the rest of the décor in the room.

We are happy how Fusion paint allows us to easily add a splash of colour, and how we can use Washi tape in functional ways to keep us organized.
