The Question Club
When I turned 18 I finally (at long last) got rid of the baby wallpaper in my bedroom (featuring whimsical Australian animals with balloons) and repainted with something a bit more mature...
( Details...Collapse )
So that's the background to my question, which is as follows:
Given that I have used a fairly dark textured paint on my walls, what's the easiest and best way to paint over it with a light colour, without sanding the walls right back to smooth? I want minimal fuss, minimal effort, maybe two coats of paint at most. I'm not looking for a smooth finish, the texture can stay if it's easier, but I do want an even cover (i.e. none of the old colour showing through).
Should I just use more suede-effects paint on top, applied thick with a brush? Or should I yuse a roller with a long nap? Or short? Synthetic or natural material? Or should I sponge or foam-brush the paint on, to make sure all the little valleys are filled?
