Paint Doors the Professional Way


So you want to paint like a pro? Well, sit back and let me give you some tips and a tutorial for painting a door for starters. Then we’ll work our way around the room. This guide works for both paneled doors as well as flat doors. The best and the easiest way to start painting a door is by removing it and to lay it horizontally on saw horses. This is good for avoiding drips on to the floor. Then make sure you lightly sand the entire door. A sanding block or a sheet of sand paper is best for this purpose.

Follow this step by using a primer. Although it is best to use it if the door is bare wood and stained wood. Or if the door is dark color and you want to paint it lighter color. Now if your door has panels, then paint them first. Use a small roller to paint door can greatly speed the process, and it is best to use the brush to smoothen out the paint and fill in any spots missed by the roller. Make sure to drag your brush in the same direction as the wood grain for a fine finish. Leave the edges of the door for the last step.

Fireplace with Seating


Place your living room furniture around the room in a way that promotes conversation and frames the fireplace. The exact placement of the furniture will depend on the room’s shape, size, your decor style and the formality of the room. An impressive fireplace can be the ideal focal point for a living room. Its architectural presence draws immediate attention, and it also has an important function, that is to provide comfortable warmth during the cold weather. It is no wonder it is a fantastic idea to have cozy seating next to the fireplace. After all, when there is a fireplace in the house, you want to be around it.

While integrated seating is ideal, some homeowners may want to invest in other seating plans around their fireplace. A large-scale coffee table can anchor the sofas and the chairs, or a nice vintage chartreuse leather wing chair adds a bit of glamour to the living area. You can alter the whole feel of the room just by adding a couple of tufted fireside chairs that can also make the look and feel of the place more welcoming and cozy. These are also pretty handy if you are entertaining a big group of people.
