Painting and Decorating Craftsman Tip.2

Monday, January 18th, 2010
Added value on this post, here are a selection of painting and decorating tips:
  • To make a narrow room look wider, hang striped wallpaper horizontally instead of vertically
  • Shine a torch or bright light sideways along a wall you are about to fill, it will show up all imperfections, so that you can fill the wall thoroughly.
  • Always apply multiple thined down coats of paint instead of one thick coat straight from the tin. This is the correct way to create a superb finish.
  • Use a ladder stay when painting guttering or high areas. It will keep you away from the wall creating a more comfortable position to paint from. Stability is also increased.
