To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called ‘ESP Easy Surface Prep’, available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work. It was recommended to me by a professional painter. @ Pin For Your Home
This is a pin to "Room by room: decorating secrets." My favorite tips from this post: Hang window curtains “high and wide” to make windows look bigger, hang shower curtains higher than usual to make a bathtub feel roomier, arrange accessories in odd numbers, hang wall decor at eye level, when hanging wall decor above a table, lower the height of the piece so that it “relates to the table.”
In this illustration, you can easily see how hanging draperies up near the ceiling and out on the walls create a much better look for the windows, and the room as well. The drapery placement frames the window, makes the window look twice as big, and lifts the room in perceived height. It’s kind of an optical illusion, but it really works wonders.
