Most people aren’t aware of sand paint and how useful it is. To be honest, most people aren’t even aware that it exists. The fact of the matter is that it not only exists, but it can really help you achiever beautiful looking surfaces in or outside your home.
In this short guide you’ll learn about the cost, how to use it, and when and where to use it as well.
If you hadn’t noticed, you’ll be interested to find out that all the popular and reliable manufacturers provide this special paint. You can get Lowe’s own brand, Valspar, or if you prefer head on down to Home Depot and get Behr from them. Either way, you’ll get the job done if you do it right.
You can also get Glidden, Sherwin Williams, and Krylon if those are available to you. It’s important to keep that in mind as well; you’re not looking for the best one, you’re looking for the one that will get the job done right.
When do you need to apply this finish? The main reason people use this is to hide imperfections in the wall, ceiling, or other surface. The sand particles in the paint effectively hide the imperfections making your project look as good as new.
It can be applied to previously painted or primed surfaces, though it’s important to realize that it cannot be made use of over wallpaper. So after preparing your surface, you’ll be ready to go.
There are several styles of sand paint out there, and I recommend that you go and check out the different swatches and schemes in person before you make a decision to buy.
There are Island, Spanish, Rivera, Sudan, Bermuda, and Yosemite style sands available. It’s really almost as fun (and confusing) as trying to select the right color. However, if you do pick the one that you like the best, you’re ready to get to work on your house.
Just remember, painting with this stuff is the same as regular style, so don’t just try to spray it all on there. Be slow and methodical. You want to do it right the first time.
