Inquisitive people I know often ask questions such as:
- What order do you paint things in?
- Is there a way to roller a ceiling without it hurting my arm/aching my back?
- How exactly do you hang wallpaper?
- Will this paint wash off my hand/coat/hair/dog?
- What’s the best way of getting chipped old paint off my door?
- You see those yellow-tea-bag-looking-stains all over the skirting… what’s that all about?
- What’s the difference between matt and silk/undercoat and gloss/satin and eggshell?
- I’ve put handmarks all over the newly painted bannister, can we fix it before my wife finds out?
- What about that water stain?
- Surely it’s impossible to fix a hole that big, is it?
- What is “cutting in” anyway?
In this section, we will try and answer questions such as those, and we will use it as a space for you to ask any DIY/decorating questions for us.
