Ok. Thaks for your help. I have done a complete 180, but I need help on this as well. Walpaper is off, panneling sanded and primed. I want to paint stripes. Iknow it sounds tacky.. but I saw it on trading spaces once and it looked great! So im going to alternate between light green, light purple and a soft white. Should I use different finishes? (semigloss, matte??) And should I paint the entire room white, grooves and all, and then paint teh other colours over or should I paint all my green stripes, let it dry, all my purple stripes, let it dry and all of my white stripes let it try and so on. The colours are very soft and it is for a little girls room so.. Also, should I use tape between teh panels or can i just use very carefully, a samll roller. Im a single mom who has never painted before, so im worried. Any advice would be really appreciated! Thanks!
