When it comes to paint, there are two types to choose from: oil paint and latex paint. Oil paint is very resistant to water, which is why it works well in kitchens. It also tends to be very shiny, so it's mainly used on cabinets, woodwork and doors. Latex paint is the more popular option for kitchen walls and it comes in a few different finishes.
You can also use chalkboard paint to create a unique backsplash in your kitchen. The classic black chalkboard color works well with white or light-colored cabinets, while a lighter shade is recommended for dark cabinets. A chalkboard backsplash will provide a canvas where you can write down grocery lists, recipes or special notes for your family. Easy to wipe clean, chalkboard paint works well in a space where there tends to be grease and spattered food.
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.
Painting a ceiling can be a pain in the neck (literally!), but it's a relatively easy project that you can do yourself. Before you begin painting, make sure to cover your floor, countertops, cabinets, appliances and any other surfaces with a drop cloth. Using painter′s tape, cover the area where the wall meets the ceiling, unless you′re using the same color on both surfaces.
