The right paint can bring your home to life. It can spice up different rooms and enable you to obtain the theme that you have always dreamt of. Paint can also uplift your mood and make a dull day appear brighter. However, not all of us were made with a creative gene within us.
All too often, homeowners attempt to carry out painting projects by themselves with disastrous results. They end up painting more than just the walls, with paint appearing on furniture, pets and even children.
If you're painting a room, one of the most challenging areas to get right is the edge along the ceiling and the baseboards. To help you out, here are some tips to keep in mind.
1. Remove the Baseboards
For the bottom edge of the wall, it always helps to remove the baseboards. Then, you only have to get the paint relatively close to the flooring, and you don't need to worry about getting the edge straight.
If your kids share a bedroom, you'll know the struggle of getting them to agree on any kind of decor choice. One child might want a princess theme, while the other could be football mad. Using clever painting tricks is a great way to add personality to the room, without arguments, tantrums or tears.
If you've got enough wall space, creating two murals, each based on the interests of one child, is a great compromise.
