1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Q: Prepare a wall to paint (?) on: January 18, 2011 07:39:15 AM
So I'm thinking of re-painting my bedroom wall in some colors, and I gathered some info about how to do it lately. It says that I should sand off the surface before I paint it.

I just wanna ask that do I reallyneed to sand the whole old paint of the wall off so the new paint will stick in. It seems like a lot of work to do = =!!!, what about just clean it all up with some clean damp cloth and paint it?

If you guys have any advices or suggestions you would like to tell me, please do. I will love that Smiley

THANK YOU.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Is painting wooden(parquet) floor okay? on: December 01, 2010 07:39:43 AM
Well, my bedroom is pretty small with a lot of mess; so I decided to give it a big make over and I would love to make it a simple style (even if I have too much stuff in the room!).

So here's the thing I would like to ask for you advice.
- I want to paint my wooden wall in plain matt white but I just have no idea how I'm going to prepare before I paint it or how to choose the type of paint I can use.

and... my floor is sorta new (I guess), cus my house is a brand new 5 years old so the floor is still has those shiny wood shiled things on. So... should I sand it of before I paint it?

and here's what I expect my floor to be. Smiley
