Painting

Painting your home can be a chore. The following tips can help to make painting the inside of your home fun and exciting. There are many different painting techniques that will make your home into a work of art. They are also fun and easy to do. Here are a few techniques to get you started.


Using Stencils

Stencils are the easiest and quickest way to add color and style to your walls. They are very inexpensive and are available in just about any store. Stencils are very easy to use, just tape them to the desired spot on the wall and paint over them. You can get stencils of just about anything; you can even print them off the internet, or cut them out and tape them to the wall. Any good indoor paint will work, and you won’t need a lot unless you have a really large room. To do two colors with your stencils you just tape off the color you are not using, paint, tape off the other section, remove the tape from the first step, and paint with your other color.


Specialty Paint Rollers

Specialty paint rollers are rollers that have designs in the roller. All you have to do is put paint on the roller and roll it across the wall. Most of these rollers make lines or a zigzag pattern, although there are others available. You should practice with these rollers before using them on your wall so that you know what they look like, and how much paint you should put on the roller for the best look.


Sponge Painting

Sponge painting walls gives them a beautiful, textured look. There are different types of sponges for different looks, but you use them all the same. You dip the sponge in the paint and dab it over the wall until you get the look you like.
