Paint is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to update your home. In the kitchen, a few cans of paint will work wonders on the walls, cabinets, kitchen island, table, chairs and even your backsplash.
An easy and affordable way to update a room, stencils can also create a striking backsplash. They´re also much less permanent than tiles, and you can easily paint over them when you`re ready for something new.
Once you´re ready to start painting, you´ll want to prime the ceiling. Once the primer is dry, paint a 2- to 3-inch cut-in line on the ceiling using a paintbrush. Make sure to start painting the ceiling with your roller while the cut-in line is still wet to avoid having a visible line. Then, make a zigzag pattern with your roller and go over that with straight strokes to even out the paint. Let the first coat dry and then start the same process over again for a second coat.
Before you begin painting, make sure to remove any cushions or fabric from the chair. If you′re unable to remove the cushions, cover them with plastic. Next, you′ll need to prepare the surface by sanding it with coarse-grit sandpaper. This will create a surface that the paint can really adhere to.
