Spring will be rolling around before you know it. You may feel like you have no other option than to paint. As you pull everything out and away from the walls simply dust your walls from top to bottom removing the dust. Be careful to dust the ceilings while your at it.
Next clean the walls with a wet damp cleaning cloth, be careful and think about going over it twice the second time with clean water. Stand back and take a good look, do your walls really need to be painted? You can add decorative wall decals to brighten up any room and have it looking as if it just got a major face lift.
Before you go to all the trouble and expense of painting, follow this simple plan. I've found I can go much much longer without painting using wall decals. Don't pass on the cleaning step it really brightens things up and clean is good!
Enjoy Your New and Improved Home, Katie
