In the world of home improvement projects, house painting has no rivals.
Nothing beats this cheapest, easiest and most dramatic way to improve your house inside and out.
For example, you may have a simple rancher or a small apartment furnished with flea market finds, but with the right paint colors your modest abode can be turned into a designer showcase.

In other words, house painting can just as easily enhance your home decorating style as it can cramp it - the difference is all in how you do it.
