Her Dream Nursery
A new addition to the family just might mean a new house! For this new home’s nursery, bare drywall is primed with KILZ® 1 Standard – formulated to seal porous surfaces. Fresh-as-spring colors painted in a bold striped pattern create a playful accent wall, while a coordinating light blue rocking chair ties the sweet space together.
STRIPED ACCENT WALL
WHAT TO USE
- Primer: KILZ® 1 Standard Primer
- Paint: KILZ Complete Coat® in
Aqua Ice RE210-01,
Yellow Frosting LE240-01
and Origami RJ210
- Brush: High Quality Nylon/Polyester
- Roller: 1/2” - 3/4” Nap
- Drop Cloth
- Damp Cloth
- Can Key
- Stir Stick
- Straight Edge
WHAT TO DO
Wipe down the chosen accent wall with a damp cloth to ensure it is clean and free of dust. Allow the surface to dry.
Apply KILZ 1 Primer to seal the porous surface of the new drywall. Apply primer using a brush first to “cut in" around edges, then use a roller to fill in. Allow 1-hour dry time.
Selecting the lightest of the three paint colors as the base, apply KILZ Complete Coat in Origami RJ210 to the entire accent wall. Use a brush first to cut in around edges 4 to 6 feet at a time, then use a roller to fill in those sections before moving along. Allow 1-hour dry time.
Now comes the fun, painting the striped pattern! Measure the height of the wall and divide by the desired number of stripes to determine the width of each stripe. Use a measuring tape, pencil and level, mark the placement of each stripe, then apply painter’s tape to each line (ensuring the tape is on the correct side of the line so the stripes are even).
Using a roller, paint every third stripe in KILZ Complete Coat in Yellow Frosting LE240-01. Repeat the above steps to paint every other remaining stripe in Aqua Ice RE210-01.
Remove the painter’s tape (pulling off at an angle) before the paint has fully dried to ensure clean lines and your sweet striped wall is done!
ROCKING CHAIR REFRESH
WHAT TO DO
Remove chair cushion and set aside.
Sand the entire surface of the chair; do a first pass with 100-150 grit sandpaper then finish with a second pass of 180-220 grit sandpaper.
After sanding, wipe down the surface with a damp cloth to remove any dust or residue and allow the surface to dry before moving on to primer.
Apply KILZ 2 All-Purpose Primer, moving in the same direction as the wood grain for best results. Allow primer to dry for 1-hour.
Next it’s time for paint! Apply KILZ Complete Coat in Aqua Ice RE210-01 using a nylon or polyester blend brush, moving in smooth strokes that go the same direction as the wood grain.
Once fully dry, reattach your cushion and rock away!
