Here we are, on the eve of another New Year. You may not have planned on adding “Update Home Décor” to your list of New Year’s resolutions, but you certainly will after you see these incredibly easy and ridiculously affordable home décor ideas and solutions we’re sharing today at Design Connection, Inc.! And when I say “easy”, I mean one coat of paint, “easy”.

I love seeing DIY projects that really look professional. The problem is, I haven’t seen that many! If you have ever tried to re-purpose a dresser or give an old table a new, fresh look, you know how much work is really involved. The prepping, the priming, the painting… More painting and maybe even a third coat, only to result in a mediocre final product. Well, my friends, those agonizing DIY projects are SO 2013. Thanks to the phenomenal artist, furniture and interior designer, Amy Howard, re-purposing furniture has truly become a one-step process with beautiful results, regardless of your DIY expertise.

Have you ever painted a wall with no primer? How about with only one coat of paint? That’s unheard of! At least, it was! Completely change the feel of an entire room by painting the walls, or that old bookcase, in one painless, glorious coat of One Step Paint.

It truly is amazing how one coat of paint can completely change a space. Black can be dramatic, romantic, luxurious and serious, especially when paired with gold accessories, like in the classic example from

Now, the spray lacquer by Amy Howard is just amazing! For many DIYers, lacquer and high gloss paints are the hardest finishes to master…or at least, they were. One Step! ONE STEP!

These one step products are not only high performance, they are high endurance. They can really take the heat, from the daily sun beating against your front door the spice and spitfire on your one-step-painted oven door!
