A Fresh Coat of Paint

Whether you're looking to create a dramatic decor or a blank slate, the easiest and most affordable way to alter the look of a room is—you guessed it—paint. And while choosing a new hue for your walls can be an exciting prospect, it can also be a daunting one—with fifteen different shades of eggshell, who wants to tackle the blue family? Don't let those endless swatches scare you away from color. TOH's Choose Paint Colors With a Color Wheel will help take some of the guesswork out of the process.

Slapping on a coat of paint may seem simple, but it's just as easy to make a mess if you don't know what you're doing. For full step-by-step instructions, see How to Paint a Room before you begin.
