7 Things Your House Painter Wishes You Knew
News from Realtor.com News:

Kim Steele/Getty Images

With the exception of hardened DIY-types (you know who you are!), just about all homeowners will hire painters at some point—whether to prepare their home for moving in, or for a sale, or perhaps to kick off a remodel with a new color scheme.

But homeowners tend to get nervous around painters. What if they spatter the new carpeting or shatter the china cabinet window? What if the colors you’ve painstakingly selected don’t work out?

Use leftover paint to add pizazz to furniture and kitchen items.  

FUN USES FOR LEFTOVER PAINT: Summer is a prime time for indoor and outdoor painting projects – and leftover paint. Why not use it for home décor projects?

Here are some fast, easy and fun ideas, courtesy of the Paint Quality Institute.

Most of these projects take just a small amount of paint, but they can make a big difference in your home décor.

Kitchen kitsch: It takes only a little leftover paint to impart canisters, coasters, or the handles of wooden spoons and spatulas with bright, fun color that can make cooking more joyful.

Colorize flowerpots:  Paint planters or flowerpots one solid color, or embellish them with patterns.

Dress up a dresser: Have an old dresser that’s tired-looking? Spice it up with paint.  Use different colors on different parts for added visual interest. 

Beautify a built-in:  Embellish built-in bookcases, cabinets, or a mantelpiece with leftover paint to create striking elements in your décor.

Why Painting Is Personal for These Franchisees

Franchise Players is Entrepreneur’s Q&A interview column that puts the spotlight on franchisees. If you’re a franchisee with advice and tips to share, email ktaylor@entrepreneur.com.

CertaPro, a house painting franchise, has a motto that “painting is personal.” When Jeremy and Jennifer Rhett became franchisees 15 years ago, however, they didn’t realize just how much that motto would one day mean to them.

News from Los Angeles Times:

Like a doctor at a cocktail party, general contractor and TV personality Josh Temple often finds himself cornered by anxious homeowners looking for advice. “It happens absolutely everywhere I go! Like yesterday I was at the airport and when you’re waiting an hour to board, people start pulling out pictures of their bathrooms and kitchens,” he says with a chuckle. “But it’s a compliment, at least that’s how I take it, so I embrace it.”

The ebullient star of DIY’s “House Crashers” — where he wanders the aisles of Home Depot offering gratis renovations to lucky shoppers — Temple can be seen as a host and mentor on HGTV’s “Beach Flip,” in which competing teams revamp run-down beach homes. With 20-plus years of experience under his (tool) belt, the Silver Lake resident’s expertise is irrefutable and probably pricey. Good thing he agreed to reveal his best tips for what you can DIY at your beach pad to add value and appeal, and what you should leave to the pros (like him).

5 tips for painting like a pro this summer
News from LubbockOnline.com:

Sunny summer months are the perfect time for a colorful home refresh. With open windows, warm weather and the tips below, you can check painting off your list in a breeze and head back outdoors to enjoy the weather.

Always buy high-quality paint

When it comes to paint, quality matters. Search for a combination paint-and-primer to save a few steps and ensure complete coverage. Good options have high hiding ability and resist dirt and scuffs.

BEHR MARQUEE Interior Paint & Primer is a great example. This durable paint offers a one-coat guarantee when tinted to one of 372 classic and contemporary hues in the BEHR MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection. It’s scrubbable and with a one-coat guarantee, you can spend less time painting and more time on the lake, in the yard or with your friends and family.

BEHR MARQUEE is available at The Home Depot stores nationwide. For more information, visit BEHR.com/MARQUEEguarantee.

Use websites and apps to simplify searching

Once you’ve chosen your product, it’s time to pick a color. Color selection can seem intimidating, but it’s a chance to infuse your personality into your home. Many online resources are available for homeowners to explore, coordinate and experiment with different looks. Pinterest, Houzz and Apartment Therapy are great websites for browsing images, finding home décor i…………… continues on LubbockOnline.com

News from expressandstar.com:

1. If white solvent-based paint was used on your home’s woodwork (usually the case in the past) it will have discoloured over time – sometimes in only a matter of months. Solvent-based wood paints have other disadvantages too, including smelling, drying slowly (especially when it’s cold), being prone to runs and drops (although non-drip versions are available) and being hard to clean up and clean off things.

2. Solvent-based wood paints have improved in recent years – a professional decorator recently told me some white ones don’t yellow now – but I still prefer water-based wood paints, as there’s definitely no danger of them discolouring. They also dry quickly and although you have to do several coats of white, especially on bare wood, the paint goes on more easily than solvent-based versions and becomes easier and quicker to apply the more coats you do, so you can finish the job in a day. Other colours usually need just two coats, making them much less work than white.

3. As well as specific wood/metal paints, you can get water-based multi-surface paints that can be used on walls, ceilings, wood and metal. These are ideal if you want different surfaces to match, as the same colour in a wood/metal paint and an emulsion (for walls) isn’t necessarily identical.

Dear Monty: 10 tips to avoid tenant complaints
News from Mail Tribune:

Reader question: We own 75 units in 20 buildings. My husband has a good day job, and I manage the apartments. It is not easy work. We have had tenants occasionally complain, but we have shrugged it off as sour grapes, or “It goes with the turf.” Yesterday, we got a complaint letter that several tenants signed, which is upsetting. What makes a good landlord? — Sue and Vic S.

Monty’s answer: Owning and managing apartments are hard work. Management practices must be tailored to the environment, the clientele and working conditions. That said, there are principles to utilize anywhere that can reduce or eliminate complaints. The result is less turnover, less management intervention and happier employees and occupants.

1. Treat tenants respectfully. We all know high-maintenance people. Whether late with the rent, a sharp tongue or unreasonable requests, being respectful can be difficult. There are resources to learn about techniques to employ dealing with difficult people. Books that teach readers how to get along, a local organization with classes in dealing with difficult people and even YouTube has videos on the subject.

News from nwitimes.com:

If you’re thinking about painting the exterior of your home yourself, your first decision shouldn’t concern the color or sheen of the paint but, rather, who’s going to do the painting. Deciding whether to hire a contractor or do the work yourself has implications for your social calendar, your peace of mind and your pocketbook. “In the painting industry preparation is the key. It’s what separates the professionals from the amateurs,” says Ricardo Suarez of Calumet Painting & Restoration, LLC. “It always makes sense to use the best products so remember that in choosing a contractor as well.”

With so much at stake, how do you make the right decision?

1. Do you have enough time to do the job? Repainting a home can take a full week or two. For many people, that translates into a lot of vacation days or weekends. Are you willing to make the sacrifice?

2. Do you have the patience to do the job correctly? While painting can be fun and psychologically rewarding, good surface preparation — essential to any successful paint job — can be tedious. Will you really take time to properly prepare the surface before yielding to the urge to paint? “I think one of the biggest mistakes homeowners make if they try and do the job themselves is that they try and brush and roll the product onto their old aluminum or steel siding.” Rick goes on to exp…………… continues on nwitimes.com

News from Belleville News Democrat:

What can I do to freshen up my living room or family room without spending a fortune? This is a question that I get dozens of times each week from readers, viewers and friends. Everyone is tired of winter and looking for quick decorating pick-me-ups.

Start with color. You don’t have to paint an entire room, unless it truly needs it. I painted my interior doors black, and it is a wonderful, dramatic change throughout the entire house.

Why not add color to the back of your bookcases, just one wall or even your doors? Carry that same color throughout the room with flowers, throw pillows or an affordable ceramic garden stool. I’m seeing these colorful stools just about everywhere for less than $ 100. They also make great accent tables and can be used in living rooms, bathrooms and even outdoors. After all, they are “garden” stools.

Have a few extra dollars to spend? Consider purchasing a new occasional chair – one of the best furniture investments you can make. They are affordable and come in a variety of patterns, colors and textures. And even better, they are available as cash-and-carry items in almost any furniture store. You don’t have to wait four to eight weeks for a special order. CR Laine has a new collection of citrus-colored chairs that would make it easy to brighten any decor.
