Three tools every beginner painter needs

When starting your very first DIY project, you might be overwhelmed with all the materials to be purchased. There is a lot of preparation required before embarking on your first DIY painting project, but with the proper tools, it can be completed with little or no stress.

To begin, make sure you have the following 3 things:

 A large drop cloth

Before buying any other materials, you should first purchase an oversized tarp or drop cloth that can sufficiently cover the floors of your rooms completely. While spilling and flicking paint is never intentional, accidents can cause quite a mess. By ensuring that you cover your floors completely, you can be sure that once done, you will be left with little or no mess.

Masking Tape

Get the job done like a professional with nice, clean lines when painting around edges and corners of walls. Make a trip to your local hardware store to pick up a roll of masking tape. A highly underrated accessory to a painter’s toolkit, but it’s exactly what you need to achieve a professional result.

Variety Brush Pack or Decorator Roller Kit

Planning your nursery

This blog article is for all the parents to be, who are busy preparing for their new, little bundle of joy to arrive.

This article will help you decide on the perfect look to give your nursery you’ve always dreamed of for your little one.

Here are some of the ways you can prepare your nursery other than just wall paint colour.

CHOOSE A THEME

Not only will a nursery theme help you select the wall colours, but it will also help you plan your decor, as well as give those who attend your baby shower some suggestions on what they can gift you to match the theme.

ADD ART

If you want pastel coloured walls, we think that’s a great idea. However, if you want bright colours in your nursery, you can either get colourful posters and frame them or add one bright accent wall. The artwork you use doesn’t necessarily need to be themed for babies.

GREY IS GREAT

We don’t mean that you need to paint the walls grey, (although, that is certainly an option) but we do know that finding white furniture or décor accents like linen, toys, shelves etc to match or contrast the grey can be helpful. Choosing grey or any other neutral colour can keep the room looking light and classy.

GENDER DOESN’T LIMIT COLOUR

Whatever colour you want in your baby’s nursery is up to you. There is no pressure to adhere to any colour rules with regard to gender or any other nursery tradition. A baby boy doesn’t mean you need to choose blue. A blue nursery for a girl is just as lovely.

Happy Painting!
