*Always start by painting a trial section of wall 3-4 shades lighter than you think you would like.  By going too dark too soon it is difficult to cover.  It is always easier to go darker once you have lived with the shade for a day or two.

*Measure twice…. move, or cut, once!   Always measure & re-measure & re-measure to make sure an item will fit in your desired space before moving, or is being cut to the correct size.  Incorrect measurements waste money, materials and muscle!
