Remove Wallpaper

Wallpaper is a funny thing...now it's popular, now it's not. It's popularity rises and falls with regularity. If you have ever had a wallpapered room (and I'm sure you have or you wouldn't be reading this article), sooner or later you're going to want to take it down, whether it's because you want new paper on your walls or you're ready for a new look and you want to paint instead. Removing old wallpaper is not a quick and easy job...it can take time and effort.

Painting Millwork

Depending on your taste and style, millwork can be finished in a couple of different ways: It can be stained, painted or even finished with a clear seal. Most homes come with the millwork already painted or finished, so your job is probably re-painting it, whether it's because it's been used and abused or because you're ready for a change.

And then if you end up throwing them away after they've been used one time, it becomes even costlier. But there is no need to keep replacing these tools if you take a little time to clean them up after your paint job is completed.
