Paints come in a number of finishes, from flat to high-gloss. The general rule of thumb is the more matte the finish, the harder it is to clean. If a finish is glossy, it tends to be more "scrubbable."

If you end up not liking the color you choose, you can just paint over it!

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.

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.

This can be a long, tedious process, but the results are worth it. Using the tape to create different sized "tiles," you can mimic a number of different materials, from glass to stone. If you`d like to incorporate a bunch of colors into your backsplash, this technique is the way to go.

Once you`ve finished wiping down the cabinets, sand them lightly to create a slightly roughened surface for your paint to stick to. You`ll then want to remove all the drawers and drawer fronts from the island. Use masking paper to cover the interior, floor and countertop. Next you'll want to caulk any seams between the panels and doorframes; fill any holes with wood filler. Let the wood filler dry, then sand it until it is flush with the cabinet´s surface. Wipe the cabinetry clean once again to remove any traces of dust.
