Be Crafty When It Comes To Painting In And Around Your Home

Need a change in the look of your home and have to have it done on a budget? Painting things like rooms or furniture in your home can work miracles in transforming your home but without paying the high cost. Here are some crafty painting ideas that can really give your home the makeover it needs.

1. If you have ugly-looking sidewalks or paths, transform them into works of art. All you need are stencils, tape, and your favourite colour of chalk paint. Position the stencils over the sidewalks to get the pattern you want and use tape to hold them down. Paint with the chalk paint and remove the stencil. Repeat as often as necessary to finish the whole sidewalk.

2. Stripe your walls to get a unique pattern in different rooms or the kitchen. You’ll need a level, tape measure, paint, painter’s tape, pencil, and other paint supplies like brushes and rollers. Choose the design of your stripes and the width of the stripes you want. Use a straight edge and pencil to draw the lines out onto the surface area you are doing. Tape off the pattern you want with the painter’s tape. Make sure the paint is properly stuck on so that no colour will leak onto areas you don’t want painted. Paint the areas you want painted and let dry for about half an hour. When dry, remove the tape carefully to reveal your beautifully painted lines. If repainting with different patterns is too difficult for you to do, hire Professional Painting Brisbane to help you.

3. Forget wallpaper and get stamping to get the pattern you desire on your walls. You just need a rubber stamp, painter’s tape, pencil, paint, a board to put your paint on to replenish the paint on the stamp, and a paint roller to roll the paint onto the stamp board. Instead of an ink pad you’ll use the board like an inkpad. Measure where you want your stamp pattern to start. After measuring, tape off a horizontal line going across the wall. Tape off enough area to get the desired spacing you want in between the stamps vertically. Measure again and mark off on the tape with the pencil the place evenly where you want to put the stamps. You can stamp above those marks. Once done across the whole line of tape, remove the top layers of tape and place them below the bottom strip of tape revealing the desired space you want in between the stamps vertically. Again mark off the areas where you want to stamp with a pencil and repeat the stamping process until the wall is finished.

4. Chalk paint out of date brown dresser drawers to make it in style again. New furniture is expensive, especially dresser drawers. If you go on a buy, sell, and trade online thrift store shop, there are likely some old dressers people are selling at ridiculously cheap prices or even for free. They might look old and outdated but with a bit of paint, you can have it looking brand new and functional again. You can sand it to get the old colour off. Instead of using one colour for the dresser drawers, you can buy or get small containers of painting samples with tones that compliment and starting from top to bottom paint the top the lightest shade, the middle with the in-between shades, then the bottom with the darkest shades. Let the drawers dry for a day and then they’re ready to be put back together to be used.
