You will need:
Handy hints: To help paint dry open the windows and make sure the air circulates. On a cold or damp day consider using a fan heater or dehumidifier while painting. Using a brush to paint a tongue and groove ceiling will help get the paint into the joins between the wood.
Top tip: Always choose the right roller sleeve for the right surface and paint – if in doubt, check with your local Resene ColorShop staff.
To get the look: Mark previously varnished the floor with Resene Polythane clear polyurethane.
Other ideas: For a different effect on a feature wall, choose patterned wallpaper or Resene Enamacryl Metallic paint.
