Tips on Recorating with Paint
  • Debbie says that you can paint over tile and linoleum—there's no reason to rip it out.
  • Use high-adhesive primer over tile or other smooth surfaces to ensure the paint sticks.
  • You can use everyday items to help give the illusion of texture or add a pattern to your paint job. Debbie suggests using a sponge or even a feather duster.
  • If you don't have a lot of money to spend on your home, your walls become your canvas—express yourself with color.
  • Even if you live in a "cookie-cutter" house, it's your imprints on the house that make it stand out.
  • Your home is important to who you are, your family and your friends. Debbie says color is the best way to bring out your personality in your home.
  • Don't be afraid to experiment—you can always paint over it!
