stencil is removed, the pattern remains. The pattern can be anything your like including animals, stars, patterns, flowers, the alphabet and more. Faux painting
creates the illusion of natural materials such as wood, marble, granite, etc. Rubber stamping is fast and easy. It's the same technique used to create greeting
cards and handmade gifts just on your walls. For the artistic homeowner, murals add beauty and personal style to any room.
With so many options, homeowners can personalize their home with color and technique. Just remember when it's time to sell, go neutral and stick with the
basics. You want potential buyers to envision their furniture and furnishings in the space.
It's now time to prepare the walls and your home for painting. Take the extra time to prepare and you'll save time with your interior painting project. Remove light
switches, outlet plates, light fixtures, window treatments and furniture. Patch nail holes, dents and cracks with spackle and don't forget to let it dry. Sand or
scrape loose paint and even the edges. Use painter's tape to keep wall paint off the ceiling and of window frames. Use drop cloths to cover the floor. Apply a
primer if your walls are a darker paint color, your removed wallpaper or your walls are new. Applying a primer will save you money and time.
The prep work is complete and now is the time to paint. Be sure that you use new and quality rollers and paint brushes. Using the right tools will make the job
easier and provide the results desired. Begin painting by starting at the top and moving downward. Typically you should start with the ceiling, upper woodwork,
the walls and finally the lower woodwork. It's a matter of personal choice to edge first or last. Your main paint application will be with a roller thus allowing even
paint distribution over larger areas.
