Stand Out With Paint

Incorporating paint to a family room can help spruce up a space in addition to being an exciting family home improvement project in Dallas. Start by selecting the color -- children normally have strong ideas of the color they want to see on their walls. Then go and make sure everyone can have a personal paint brush and smock.

If you have some young painters, plan on cutting out the trim around the wall before bringing in the little ones to help. By chunking up the walls into small areas, you can ensure each member has their individual workspace that’s just the perfect height.

If adding paint to a room with your loved ones doesn’t sound like a good thing, start with painting outside by putting a new color of paint on the backyard fence around your home instead.
