    Be prepared for some hard work, and don’t forget “A quality paint application only lasts with through preparation of every surface.”

    I love reading your blog. You seem like a natural in sharing your experiences. I am starting my blog as well, do you think only natural writers can have something to share?

    I think painting is not so that hard. you just need to find the key how to do it. once you get it, nothing hard hence the new good looking of your house.

    first, you must find about the mixture ratio.
    second, blend it well.
    third, find a good roller.
    fourth, find several video about the same topic on youtube.
    fifth, just do it dude :D
