Bring a little of the outdoors inside your home with air plants. Air plants, also known as tillandsias, absorb nutrients through their leaves, so there is no soil involved. Their striking sculptural forms and easy care make these plants a great addition to any home.plants3 plants2

In nature, the majority of air plants survive by using their roots to attach to other objects (mostly plants, rocks, or buildings). This means they can be put in a variety of containers, making them ideal for any style of decor. They can be grown both indoors or out and do an excellent job cleaning the air. Air plants need bright, but indirect light and good air circulation to thrive. Mist these plants with water every few days or soak every 7-10 days.plants6plants4

Wall Glazing Tips and Tricks by Ella Andrews

Wall Glazing Tips and TricksIf you are in need of redoing and reworking your walls, then you may want to invest in something a bit more sturdy and long-term than wallpaper or a simple paint job. Paint jobs may look nice, but you can go one step beyond that by glazing the walls. If you do things right, you won’t have to deal with any problems with your walls for a long time, making the room both beautiful and sturdy. Follow these steps to get things started:

• The first and most important step is finding the right tools. Since glazing is essentially a type of painting, you will need to get all paraphernalia connected to the job. The difference being however is that you will need a ruler, a squeegee and a neutral glazing medium. You must make sure you have enough of the medium to get the job done. When you’re buying paint you should make sure you get semi-gloss paint instead of full gloss.

• The next step lies in the preparation of the room. You shouest, writer, ld place painters tape on the trim, the light switches as well as windows so you won’t make a mess during the process of painting. Remove any and all furniture pieces you can remove from the room as well as other things such as electronics and any pieces of art. Place drop cloths around the flooring and furniture remaining if you can’t remove it.Wall Glazing Tips and Tricks3

• You should adjust your tools according to the job at hand. Before you start work, you will need to check the squeegee so you can get the distances right. You can do that by cutting a few shallow notches that show you lengths in inches on the surface.

• Up next comes the actual job of painting the room. You should do that like any other paint job, however using the lightest color as a base coat. You can get things done fastest with a paint roller, however you will also need good paint brushes as they will be needed for the trim and other sensitive areas. You should allow each coat of paint to dry before you apply the next one, as this will allow you to get the job done right.

• Step number five is making the glaze you’ll be using up next. You will need to mix your glazing medium with a darker color paint in a 4:1 ratio. Pour the glaze you just mixed in a painting tray and begin painting the walls with it, using a foam-based paint roller. You can use a hand brush to cut into difficult areas once again like before.

Wall Glazing Tips and Tricks2• Up next comes combing, which can be done by running the squeegee on the wall in curved strokes. This will have to be done while the paint is still wet, so you may need more than just one pair of hands to get the job done before its all over.

• The last step is to allow the paint to dry completely and over the course of at least a day before you remove the painter’s tape. Once that is done you will have a nice, brand new glazed room to enjoy at your leisure.
