If your walls could talk, would they be crying for a new coat?
Even if you've never held a paintbrush, it's easy to give rooms a fresh attitude.
The key to a successful job is using quality paint, says Randy Wolfensberger, owner of Randy's Paint and Decorating Center in Hagerstown.
"A top quality, brand-name paint goes further, covers better and lasts longer," Wolfensberger says.
Better paint costs more because it has more solids and not as much water, he says. If applied properly, it should give eight to 10 years of wear, he says.
