Freshening up a Home's Interior The best way to get a new look is PAINT! Try out different painting methods to get a big impact without digging deep into your pockets. Instead of a single flat coat of paint, consider using a technique called "sheen striping" to create a subtle and textural feel. Simply paint your base color using flat-sheen paint and then paint stripes using a semi-gloss paint in the same color.  All it takes is a level, a ruler, a pencil and some painter's tape. When using stripes, remember:  Vertical stripes are great for making ceilings seem taller  Horizontal stripes can make the actual room seem larger  Smaller stripes that alternate in widths create a formal look  Wider stripes provide a more casual feel for your space With just a little Do It Yourself and some cr...
