Pro Paint and Wallpapering Tips

When you're finishing a painting project, write on a piece of masking tape the date and how many gallons of paint were needed for the job. Stick the tape to the back of the light switch plate. To get the exact shade next time, also include the color formula sticker peeled off the paint can. When the room's due for a fresh coat, you'll be ready to go.

How to Hang a Photo Collage

Clever!! What a great idea to hang a picture!! Put the toothpaste where you will want the nail to go. Then, press the picture to the wall where you want to hang it so that the toothpaste from the back of your frame sticks to the wall.

Paint color reminder tip by Martha Stewart: "When you finish painting a room, touch-ups are usually the last thing on your mind. But it's a good idea to write the paint name and product number on painters' tape and stick the label to the back of the room's light-switch plate. When the time comes to cover scuffs, you'll know exactly what shade to buy."
