I would like to remove the current wallpaper from our hallway and paint it. I've ripped a few pieces off, and underneath is just concrete.
So what would be the steps here? Rip off wallpaper, scrub or sand off remaining gluey bits, some sort of primer or I don't know what, then paint? Am I missing something, or have I got it all wrong? Or does anyone have any tips in general?
I am looking for expert advice on what I should do to replace my front walkway. I love the look of flagstone and pavers but I am concerened of the cost involved(contracted) I dont want to do the boring basic concrete so was thinking designed concrete and I am concerned about it holding up in harsh Ohio winters? I need expert advice for this walway and steps. Dont look at the weed invested yard(being replaced) and the spotted house(being painted)
We have ugly front steps that are part brick and part concrete. I want to paint them one uniform color, so they don't look so disjointed. Can I use the same paint on both surfaces, or do I have to use different paint on brick than on concrete? Thank you!
