The Tribute Room
A surprise room renovation to honor a grandfather’s military service breathes new life into a dull and neglected office. Meaningful memorabilia become the room’s focal point, showcased on dark-hued walls primed with KILZ® Original to seal and block odors and heavy stains. A desk is coated in a dark oxblood hue to complete the transformation.
WHAT TO DO
Wipe down the walls with a damp cloth to ensure they are clean and free of dust. Allow the surface to dry.
Tape around the baseboards, trim and moldings.
To seal and block odors, apply KILZ Original Primer. Stirring prior to and during use, apply primer using a brush first to “cut in" around the edges, then use a roller to fill in.
Once primer is dry (allow 1-hour dry time), apply Oceans Deep TB-60 using the same application method as the primer – using a brush first to cut in around the edges 4 to 6 feet at a time, then use a roller to fill in those sections before moving along.
Remove tape prior to paint fully drying, step back and admire your work!
WHAT TO DO
Remove drawers and hardware.
Sand the surface; 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 Original Primer to seal the surface, moving in the same direction as the wood grain for best results. Allow primer to dry for 1-hour.
Once primer is dry, apply KILZ Tribute in Bookmarker TB-99 with a brush, moving in smooth strokes in the same direction as the wood grain.
Once paint is dry, reattach hardware to drawers and reinsert drawers into the desk and you’re done!
