Tips to Painting a Room

Sometimes a change can do you good. Even something as simple as changing the color of the walls in your room can make a tremendous difference. Blue and green shades can be soothing, while yellow and red hues can make a room alive and exciting. It all depends on what mood you’re aiming for and how it will enhance the décor of a room. You can hire a professional for Boston painting, but you can still do a job well done if you perform this task yourself. For tips on painting a room like a pro, follow these instructions.

Preparation

Get that room ready for its transformation! Clear out movable furniture and cover up what’s left with tarps and plastic sheets. Take out light switch and electrical outlet plates as well as vent covers. Set up painter’s tape around the edges and corners of the walls so you don’t get paint on these surfaces. Lay out drop cloths on the floor to catch drips. Next, work on your walls. Remove paint and wallpaper scraps and flakes with a scraper. Fill cracks with caulk and nail holes with spackling compound. To clean off dirt and grease from the wall surfaces, apply trisodium phosphate and then rinse it off and wait for it to dry. Last, turn off the lights and electricity and open windows to allow ventilation.

Painting

Let’s get started on painting that room. Begin with primer, preferably the kind that blocks out stains and dark marks. Primer is especially important for unpainted and patched walls. Otherwise, the surfaces will not accept the finish or may soak it up. All you need is one coat of primer to prepare these surfaces for the finish. As for the finish, 2 coats of paint are needed. Paint the ceiling and major parts of the walls with a roller. Make a W formation and then fill it in to make sure each wall is sufficiently covered. You can use a 2- to 3-inch paintbrush to touch on those surfaces the roller cannot reach. This means the corners, the spots where the walls meet the ceiling, around the windows, around the doors, and above the trim and molding . Wait until your Boston painting job is dry before removing the tape and setting up furniture.

Photos To CD

process

Hello all, been a while since I updated this blog and the reason is namely time. However, during the interval I had time to clean out the garage and it turned out I found a lot of photos of me as a child. Not just that I also found a picture of my mother and father. However, I am somewhat disappointed as the photos looked dull and gloomy. Remembering what the pictures bring and the memories of my fun childhood, I try to find a website that could help to improve and brighten the picture again to its former condition or even the one that can copy photos to cd. After a while of browsing the net at last I found a website that I’m sure can do a good job. . They are Scan Digital dot com and I think they’re the best at what they do and they really offer a complete service.

Not only that they do photo scanning, they also do negative, slide and album scanning. And if that’s not enough they also do video and film transfer. Their manual processing are that all photos are scanned and edit by hand. The quality of the work are assure as each image are reviewed by not one or two but by three technicians. The photo scanning process starts with cleaning individual photo with compressed air and a lint free cloth and picture are scanned using the highest quality equipment with each image is repair by highly skilled technicians cropping, rotation, color correction and red-eye removing them.

After all that is done the newly digitized images are either burned to CD, DVD or loaded to an external Hard Drive and shipped back to you. But the best thing is that by converting old photos to digital format, you are protecting your images against dust, decay, scratches and other damaging effects.
