Blending Colours and Integrating Patterns: Unique Painting Ideas

Hi. My name is Kate. Welcome to my blog. I love painting, but I also love the art of collage. As a result, I like to play with colours and patterns when I painting. I have done everything from painting with sponges to freehand painting murals and patterns. I love it. As a busy mum with two kids and several dogs, I don't always have the time to paint that I like, but if I had more time, I would probably repaint a room every other week. Anyway, I decided to start a blog about painting and wallpapering. I hope you like these ideas.

Australia already has a voluntary ban on plastic microbeads in beauty products (with the onus on retailers to stop stocking the products in question), and the European Union is set to ban many single-use plastic products, such as plastic plates, cutlery and drinking straws.

Garage Flooring: Simple Tips for Dealing with Damaged Epoxy Coatings

Epoxy coatings are ideal for use on garage floors because of their durability. The coating is not vulnerable to mechanical damage due to the pressure exerted by vehicles. Also, the protective layer will prevent surface staining due to oil spills and other similar fluids. In addition, epoxy flooring will prevent the deterioration of concrete garage floors due to moisture exposure. However, an epoxy coat is not infallible. It can become damaged if it experiences unfavourable conditions or undue stress. Read More

How to Repaint Your Crumbled or Bubbled Wall Paint

Bubbling or crumbling of wall paint can be caused by multiple factors. Poor preparation of the surface at the time of painting, using low-quality paint or improper applications are some of the major causes.
