Pepping up your dining room with an accent wall is easy following these simple tips to make sure you get the accents you want and don’t spread the love (paint) to the rest of the room.

  1. Make sure the wall is clean.
  2. Lightly sand the surface.
  3. Tape off the trim, windows, and doorframes.
  4. Use primer.
  5. Use a brush to paint places you can’t roll, such as near taped off areas and corners.
  6. Repeat 2-4 times until your accent color is as rich as you want!
