if you ever sat in your living room and looked around and thought you need to do something but you’re limited on time and you’re limited on money as well as a professional designer, let me tell you the smartest thing you can do that will give you the biggest bang for your bucks…
PAINT YOUR WALLS !!!
it’ll give you a freshness and it’ll change your entire colour scheme.
Today I’m going with WHITE colour..
White will give you unlimited opportunities to accessorise and decorate your home. it’s FRESH, it’s CLEAN, and as far as I’m concerned white is ALWAYS in style.
Do you know how many people commented telling that they can’t paint? They say, they live in an apartment and ranting that they only have white walls.
Well, guess what.. repaint those white walls and it will give it a fresh feel. Today I’m going to show you how to make it look fabulous..
First step you have to get all the furniture into the centre of the room or out of the house. You also need to ALWAYS remove your electricity switch plate covers.
When you’re fixing holes you can either sand it or you can scrape it, and when you get it nice and smooth then you go over it. It’s also a good idea to go over your baseboards, to make sure that it is clean..
Now that I clean the walls, I’m gonna put some blue tape with a special painters tape and it could comes off really easy. just tear it in about 12 inches at a time.
Behr paints makes a paint called marquee and it’s their luxury line. it is a primer and painter in one. There is a thousand colors to choose from.
The block stains is easy to clean and you can do it all in one.
coat to determine how much paint you’re going to need, you’re going to probably want to figure.
one gallon will cover two hundred and fifty to four hundred square feet.
first I’m going to cut into the walls around the edges.
The marquee color that I’ve chosen for my walls is called cameo.
white brush out and feather out the edges so you don’t see any brush lines and once you’ve got your perimeter on, your next step is to apply paint to a roller and use what we call the W..
This will help place an even distribution of paint onto the wall and then you can continue rolling from the top edge of the wall to the bottom rolling in a W as you go.
I got my coat of paint on and I’m ready to pull off my tape let’s see how it looks.
All of my accessories and colors that I already had look amazing with these fresh white walls but I can add different touches and just change it up a bit, still very serene, very beachy, and very California casual.
and then there are times when I might feel a little more glam and I could see something more like this pretty swanky.
even in my imagination I kind of think in this I should put on a strapless gown and pour myself something bubbly.
what do you think? and to think all of this was done in one coat and in one day, pretty simple.. I
can’t think of a better way or a faster way and a bigger bang for your buck to paint your house.
