Frank’s Tips:

Create the illusion of an expensive lower wall without breaking the bank by using blue painters tape to create a dramatic line. Paint lines with a semi-gloss white paint.

A great secret tip of the trades is to create a design, draw it out and tape the edges. Apply a dead flat varnish to seal the edges so that when you pull the painters tape off your design will have a straight edge with no paint bleeding. You can use the dead flat varnish to help create any wall design with paint to help give that professionally painted look.

Chalkboard paint is a hot trend. The paint is a good way to personalize your walls instead of using picture frames.  Create something unique and write inspirational quotes or have your children write things that make them happy.

Use two different types of paint to add texture (plaster look), shimmer or a fun pop of color to your walls and instantly create a new look.
