How to Spray-Paint Your Library

Here’s the deal: If your library doesn’t inspire you to read more books, you probably need to give it a new look. Libraries are homes of the greatest treasures in the world, which means they shouldn’t bore you at all!

A library should be taken care of, must have a welcoming presence, and should make you feel like you are time-traveling to another place.

How will you do that? Use a spray paint. Yep, it’s that popular tool used for vandalizing. But it could be used for a good cause too!

So, let’s get started!

Preparation Time for Cleaning

Prepare your library by leaving the largest pieces of furniture inside and removing everything else. Make sure you take out outlet plates and light switches too! All the stuff should be transferred to a safe and dry place.

Cleaning Time

  1. Thoroughly clean your library. Sweep, mop, and vacuum the floor. Clean the ceilings and the walls too! Ensure that no dirt and dust would be left. Take your time. Don’t be lazy because this is a crucial step. If necessary, clean your walls and ceiling using a towel and a bucket of soapy water.
  2. You might need to patch up cracks and holes that are holing up (pun definitely intended), so use a gap filler. Always sand the surface after filling the gaps.
  3. Scrape off cracked paint or bumps on walls too. You wouldn’t want to keep them forever, would you?

Preparation Time for Painting

  1. Get your painter’s tape and cover the switches. To cover all the other things in the room that you don’t want to be painted, use newspapers.
  2. Use a primer to prime your library.

Painting Time

  1. A High Volume Low Pressure spray gun was used to paint the Marine All-Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 121 multimillion dollar flag plane. Typically, aircraft are painted every couple of years according to the Marines with corrosion control.Now, this is the fun part! Add paint to your spray gun carefully.
  2. Grab a piece of cardboard and test the gun. Get used to the “feel.”
  3. Wear your mask, gloves, and protective eyewear.
  4. Begin painting! Start with the ceiling. When spraying, ensure that you’re around 10-12 inches away from the surface.
  5. After the ceiling, paint the walls. You might want to use wall stencils to make the walls inviting.
  6. Now paint the floor by rows to avoid stepping on the paint. Of course, start with the corner farthest from the door.

Waiting Time

  1. Wait for the paint to completely dry. Wait for at least 24 hours.
  2. While waiting, you might want to plan on where to put the stuff you’ve removed from your library. It’s best not to return them to where they came from so that your library will really look new.

Returning Time

Homey Activities Bookworms Will Come To Love Someday

While most people think there’s not much to do at home except for chores, it’s not exactly the case – especially for those who are idle most of the time when staying at home and even for those who are reading most of the time when staying at home.

That’s right!

You see, who says you can’t idle without being productive? You can either make something that can be displayed as art in the living room like a painting, which you can do while sitting on a chair; or fix something that be exampled as guide in the comfort room like a broken showerhead, which you can do while standing on a tub.

You also see, who says you can’t read without being productive? You can either create something that can be displayed as guide in the back patio like a flowerbed, which you can do while sitting on a chair; or fix something that can be exampled as art in the drive path like a big snowman, which you can do while standing on a corner.

Other homey activities bookworms will come to love someday include:

Planting Herbs

Herbs are not only responsible for making your cooked dishes more flavorful than usual. They are also responsible for making your sick body more fit than usual. This includes planting herbs like cannabis, which grows best with those equipment found on gardeningandhome.com to bring out nothing but the best in all its benefits – not just when it comes to one’s physical well-being, but also for one’s mental and emotional well-being.

Reusing Oldies

And by this, it means reusing what can still be used from those junks you’re already looking to completely dispose. You can either fix something anew with that reusable junk or make something new with that unusual junk. This will not just make you showcase all that’s there to inspire people in fixing things on their own, but also make others showcase all that’s there to motivate people in creating things on their own – not just for the sake of fixing, but also for the sake of creating out from fixing.

Indeed, you can always idle while being productive – especially when planting herbs. And indeed, you can always read while being productive –  especially when reusing oldies.
