Can you cover up textured walls?
For mildly textured walls, it may be possible to smooth over irregularities with a skim coat. A skim coat is a joint compound, or “mud,” that can be used to fill in cracks and even out odd surfaces. But it’s not as easy as throwing on a new layer of paint.

How do I get a perfect line between my wall and ceiling?
This method takes a little practice, but with the right paint brush and a steady hand, you can paint a perfect line where the wall meets the ceiling. Using a high-quality angled brush, apply paint to the wall about 1/4″ down from the ceiling. I like using a 2″ angled brush. Do not reload the brush with paint.

What are the 4 types of texture?
The texture stimulates two different senses: sight and touch. There are four types of texture in art: actual, simulated, abstract, and invented texture.
How do you get wall decals to stick to textured walls?
On a textured surface though, you need to be able to push the vinyl down into the uneven surface so that it really sticks. You can also try rolling a tennis ball or rubber ball over the vinyl decal to really push it into the wall. Another way thing to try is heating it up first with a hair dryer.
Can I sand down textured walls?
Gently sand the surface of the wall with sandpaper. If warm water removed most of the texture, a light sanding will likely smooth the wall surface. For plaster walls, it can take heavy continual sanding to remove the textured paint. Level the walls with drywall compound if the texture is too deep for complete removal.
Should I paint horizontal or vertical stripes?
Choose Vertical or Horizontal Stripes
They are classic, elegant and never go out of style. Horizontal stripes make a room appear more spacious; vertical stripes make the ceiling appear higher. Tone-on-tone vertical striping was the technique we used in our demonstration.
Do vertical stripes make a room look bigger?
An interior designer trick to make a room look bigger is to use stripes. Vertical stripes, both wide and narrow, tend to make a wall look longer and taller; horizontal stripes going across a wall make the wall appear wider. Uncovered clean windows will make any room brighter and feel more spacious.
How do you paint perfectly straight lines?
11 Tips to Paint Perfectly Straight Lines

Do you cut in before or after rolling?
Don’t cut in twice and then roll. Cut in one coat and then roll on one coat, so the coats dry together and create a smoother finish.
