Paint Spruce-ups

If your paint job is looking a little dull, you can perk it up with very little time and effort. Here are a few techniques that you can use to add color and texture to your walls.

Start with a clean solid base coat. White is a great color to work on, but don't be afraid to experiment.

Choose a second color that will accent your room and pour it into a roller pan.

Use a feather duster. Dip the tips of the feathers in the paint. Then dab the top of the pan to get rid of excess paint and then lightly tap the duster against the wall. (You may want to experiment on a piece of paper first.)

Try a rag. Crumple it up and dip it into the paint. Dab away any excess paint and then use your hand to roll the rag across the wall. The crumples add an interesting texture!

Another paint tool - sponges. With very little paint on the sponge, pat it gently against the wall so you can see all of the sponge imprints. For a child's room, cut sponges into fun shapes like stars. If you buy flat sponges at a craft store, they're much easier to cut through!
