I love how a fresh coat of paint can instantly transform the impact of a room. If you’re open to trying new paint colors, purchase a mis-tint (or what I like to call “Ooops paint”) to save a little money. Mis-tints are quality paints that just weren’t dyed quite the right shade and are sold at a great discount at paint stores and home improvements stores.
So, once you have a color you like, take on a weekend project. It’s best to put down a drop cloth or plastic so you don’t ruin your flooring; you’ll want to remove outlet and switch plates; caulk any holes or gaps you find; and if you don’t have a steady hand, painters tape is great for molding and edges. Start painting with a brush to cover edges and then grab a roller for the large areas. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can accomplish a paint project.
