Home improvement by painting
Upon walking into the home you would see a tall vestibule area opening up into the second floor. To your left you would see an entrance way into a long rectangular dark green room with inexpensive click clock flooring. Walking further down the hallway you will enter a living dining area and again a horrid looking green wall with a dirty fireplace in it, time for some home improvement. With the amount of refurbishing and decorating that needs doing, its best for some people to take out home improvement loans to make everything more affordable, so you don’t have to worry about spending a lot of your money all at once.
Walking up the stairs onto the second floor there was a small hallway going left and right and a room going straight forward which was the smallest bedroom presumably converted into a child’s playroom or the child’s bedroom. The walls and trim in this bedroom were again totally tasteless with lime green and yellow doors and trimming with blue walls. This is a shocking site. There was a large mural on the opposite wall with people in action doing things.
Turning left you would go into the master bedroom which had dirty white walls and the window wall was a dark beige. Throughout all these colored walls there are many places where the wall paint had hit the ceiling. And of course the darker the wall paint the more evident it becomes when the paint touches the ceiling. Touching the ceiling with dark paint makes it look like a bad job. If you’re looking for one quick and easy way to change the atmosphere of a room, try Cover Your Windows with some luxury blinds and see what it does for the room.
The entire home previously had pictures hung everywhere on the walls and when the homeowner vacated the property there were I won’t say there was 100 but there were many holes. Some holes were small little pinholes from hanging pictures to larger anchor holes that left large holes in the wall. Whoever removed these anchors didn’t pay much attention to removing them cleanly they just pull them out meeting and jagged protruding bump in the wall.
The first thing to correct this Home Improvement visual appearance is to repair all the damages created by pulling wall plugs and nails and plastering them up. In a situation where there was a little bump our protrusion from a nail or anchor, the painter would have to make sure that he was not proud of the wall. Usually what we do is Mississauga handyman/painting does is tap with a blunt object this bit of protruding drywall back into the wall so nothing is sticking out from the wall actually a little bit depressed would be better. Once all of these hole protrusions were depressed back into the drywall we applied some sheetrock 20 to fill the hole. Sheet rock 20 is excellent to fill holes with because it dries so quickly allowing you to put another coat of dry plaster compound on in a very short time. This stuff by the way sands very easily but cannot sand it until it is totally thoroughly dry and that means possibly about two or three hours depending on the weather outside is humid outside it will dry slower. When this compound is white with no gray areas in it, it is sandable.
Once you have completed all your drywall patch repairs and spot primed them all we went ahead and repainted all these dark colored walls and rooms to a neutral color and in this case it was CC 40 from Benjamin Moore. For paint like this and many other color options, visit Dixie Paint & Wallpaper. For the upstairs walls in the two bedrooms. Just by simply painting out the dark walls in the bedrooms made the rooms seem quite a bit larger than they were and also a lot brighter and fresher looking. Even though, we did not change the color of the walls. The other three walls were basically white very similar to CC – 40.
the dark green walls here were replaced with a softer more pastel color, gray owl, from Benjamin Moore paints this was definitely a color but very neutral. This color will match most anything. Even though it also seems like a dark color is much lighter previous paint job that was on there. Mississauga painters was using a flat wall paint which will help not reflect any irregularities in the wall. We applied to coats of paint on this living room walls. Places where the previous painter had hit the ceiling here and there with the darker green color was now evenly covered throughout also creating a nice straight line making the paint job look better.
Previous Paint Job
This is done a lot of times when the previous paint job had paint riding up onto the ceiling on occasion here and there. To make everything look nice in equal we brought the paint line a little bit up just touching the ceiling throughout the entire length of the wall making the wall look straight at the top. Mind you this can only be done if we are just talking about a very small amount of paint overrun. If the overrun has areas where it is more than let’s say 16th of an inch and dashes out here and there to and possibly dashes out to 1/8 of an inch and you’re better off to paint the entire edge of the ceiling with white paint.
Now that the main floor
had the dark ugly green looking walls painted over with a new modern lighter shade of color and the upstairs bedroom were painted white the entire home looked much more presentable, nice home improvement.
