    Painted a wall with 5 coats of paint. Didn't clean it first (I messed up, I know). Didn't use primer because the paint said it was paint + primer in one. HA! It's a 30' wall. Was originally a dark grey and painted it an off white.That's why so many coats. Used a pole to paint the highest parts. It looks terribly uneven from certain angles, I can see roller marks/lines. What's the easiest way to fix this? Would another coat work?? Please help. It looks bad.

  • Should I also paint my ceiling, or leave it white?

    Should I also paint my ceiling, or leave it white?

    I have attached a photo of how I'd like my bedroom to look once it's been repainted.

    I have attached a photo of how I'd like my bedroom to look once it's been repainted. I'm going to buy some checked vinyl flooring, paint the walls a light mint green, borders black, and the doors are going to be an orang-red. My bedroom is tiny though and there isn't much light coming in. So I was wondering if you think I should just leave the ceiling white, or would it look strange with the other colours? Thank you! I will also add that I'm buying a loft bed which is all white, so maybe it will balance the colours out?

  • Isn't is a bad idea to use Diesel to thin paint?

    Some guy painted a relatives interior of house using diesel fuel as a paint thinner. After 24 hours the paint still feels sticky, and smells like fuel. Probably not only bad for his health but unsafe... it s like he is being set up for a house fire since he smokes.

    It seems every time we get rain, water manages to seep through the cracks between the floor and walls of our basement. I know there are profesional solutions to this problem, but at the moment that’s out of the question because of how expensive it would be. Is something simple like stuffing towels down beside the cracks or caulking along them a good idea, or am I underestimating the power of how water can get into our basement? Also if there are any specific products I can use for this please let me know.

    So less than a year ago I got tiles installed on the first floor of my house. Its been less than a year and a lot of my tiles are starting to move, you can even hear noises like the cracking of knuckles when you step on the floors. One of the tiles has even cracked. So we called the contractor who did the job and he told us that the tiles are moving because the plywood under neath the first floor (the ceiling of the basement) is attached by wood glue which is why the tiles are moving. He said its the home builders fault for using wood glue which is causing the shifting for the tiles. Can someone tell me if this is true or is my contractor trying to rip me off because he wants me to pay extra money to fix it. Below is a link to the pictures of the grouting that is coming out, the cracked tile and the wood glue on the ceiling of the basement, that he claims to be the issue.
