Interior wall paint
Staples & stapler
TIP: Small projects equal big differences in the look of a room.
1. Patch and sand walls.
TIP: Staple sandpaper to woodblock to make sanding easier.
2. Paint three walls.
TIP: To prevent built-up edges, roll on paint in 3x3 W; then fill in without lifting roller.
3. Wallpaper fourth wall.
TIP: Use peel-and-stick paper and you won’t need paste.
TIP: Precut and number panels; you can reposition them if they don’t match.
4. Paint door gloss or semi-gloss; it will be easier to keep clean.
TIP: Protect hardware with rubber cement; cut edges to remove when paint is dry.
TIP: Slip cardboard under door to catch drips.
TIP: If door is solid, roll on paint; if door is paneled, use brush starting with panels, then verticals, then horizontals and edges.
5. Hang bamboo shades.
